It Ain't Necessarily So
It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
The things that you're liable
To read in the Bible
Ain't necessarily so

Now little David was small but oh my
Little David was small but oh my
He slew great Goliath
Who lie down and dieth
Little David was small but oh my

Jonah, he lived in a whale
Jonah, he lived in a whale
Man made his home in that fish's abdomen
Jonah, he lived in a whale

To get into heaven
Don't snap for a seven
Live clean, don't have no faults
I take that gospel whenever it's possible
With a grain of salt

Little Moses was found in a stream
Little Moses was found in a stream
He floated on water
Till ole Pharaoh's daughter
Fished him, she says, from that stream

I said to get into heaven
Don't snap for a seven
I'll live fresh, have no faults
But I get my gospel whenever it's possible
With a tiny hint of salt

Methuselah lived nine hundred years
Methuselah lived nine hundred years
Who calls that living
When no gal will give in to no man
That's nine hundred years

'Cause it ain't necessarily so
I said it ain't necessarily so
Ain't necessary so
I said it ain't necessarily so
