Thread Name: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Jonah and the Whale-2
I found this thread searching for the lyrics of the Jonah and the whale song I learned as a child back in the 1970's. I did not find the lyrics but did find two Utube videos of the song and so am sharing.

Old Jonah had a whale of a time in a whale

Old Jonah, Old Jonah, had a whale of a time in a whale
For three days and three nights in a room way down by his tail
He cried out loud for air and light
Til he was almost mad enough to fight
Old Jonah, Old Jonah, had a whale of a time in a whale

The whale took sick
He had no rest
For the wise old bird was hard to digest
He was hard to digest

Oh, oh, oh
He tried and tried in vain, oh
Bbut it only gave more pain, oh
Oh

He finally gave an awful shout, he said you have to behave or get out
So he opened up his wide front door
And kicked poor Jonah off on the shore

Old Jonah, Old Jonah, had a whale of a time in a whale

In a big black whale
