Thread Name: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
Nineveh city was a city of sin.
The jazzin' and the jivin' made a terrible din,
Beat groups playin' a rock an' roll;
an' the Lord, when he heard it said: "Bless my soul!"
The people wouldn't listen, danced night an' day
No time for work, no time to pray.
They went on dancin' by day an' night
Till the Lord he said: "well, this ain't right!"
The Lord pondered a subt'le plan; he looked around for a righteous man;
saw Jonah sitin' neath a pineapple tree,
an' the Lord he said: "That's the man for me.-
A righteous man that I can trust to raise this city from out the dust.
The man that's sitin' neath the pineapple tree,
I m certain sure, is the man for me.
