It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
The things that you're liable
To read in the Bible,
It ain't necessarily so.

Now David was small but oh my
Little David was small but oh my
Fought big Goliath
Who'd lay down and die'th
David was small but oh my.

To get into heaven, don't snap for a seven
Live clean forget your faults
I take the gospel whenever I'm able
But with a grain of salt

Now Jonah lived in a whale
Jonah he lived in a whale
He made his home in, a fishes abdomen
Jonah he lived in a whale

To get into heaven, don't snap for a seven
Live clean forget your faults
I take gospel whenever I'm able
But with a grain of salt

Methuselah lived 900 years
Methuselah lived 900 days
Who calls that livin'
No gal will give in
To no man who's 900 years

It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
The things that you're liable
To read in the Bible,
It ain't necessarily so.

Ain't necessarily so
Ain't necessarily so
Ain't necessarily so.
