Thread Name: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
Our entire middle school was taught the "Jonah-Man Jazz" en masse, all those years ago. My recollection of some of the lyrics varies slightly from those already provided, but the differences are too small to relate here without appearing to be pedantic.

However, I can offer the first stanza of the last section - perhaps it will jog the memory of someone who can provide the rest:

We had a wonderful party,
And Jonah had a whale of a time,
But now that we've really repented,
Everything's gonna be fine.

And I recall one of the final stanzas started with:

Singin' the gospel music,
Singin' the gospel shout,
[...]

Hope that helps,
Jon.
