Lyrics
Ain't necessarily so.
Ain't necessarily so.
Things you're liable
To read in a bible

Ain't necessarily so.
Little David he was small, alright,
Yeah, now David he was small alright,
Just like Goliath

Lay dying then he dieth,
Oh he was small, alright.
Little Moses he was found in a stream.
Yeah Moses now he was found in a stream

When that Pharaoh's sweet daughter
She came by and fished that boy out from the water,
Fished him, she said, from a stream.
Now Jonah now he lived in a whale.

Yeah Jonah he lived in a whale
Yet he made his home in that
Fish's abdomen.
Jonah he lived in a whale.

I said, ain't necessarily so.
No, ain't necessarily so.
The things you're liable
To read in a bible

Ain't necessarily so.
Ain't necessarily so.
No, it ain't necessarily so.
