Lyrics
It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
The t'ings dat yo' li'ble
To read in de Bible
It ain't necessarily so

Li'l David was small, but oh my
Li'l David was small, but oh my
He fought Big Goliath
Who lay down an' dieth
Li'l David was small, but oh my

Wadoo, zim bam boddle-oo
Hoodle ah da wa da
Scatty wah
Oh yeah

Oh Jonah, he lived in de whale
Oh Jonah, he lived in de whale
Fo' he made his home in
Dat fish's abdomen
Oh Jonah, he lived in de whale

Li'l Moses was found in a stream
Li'l Moses was found in a stream
He floated on water
Till Ol' Pharaoh's daughter
She fished him, she said, from dat stream

Wadoo

Well, it ain't necessarily so
Well, it ain't necessarily so
Dey tells all you chillun
De debble's a villun
But it ain't necessarily so

To get into Hebben
Don' snap for a sebben
Live clean ! Don' have no fault
Oh, I takes dat gospel
Whenever it's pos'ble
But wid a grain of salt

Methus'lah lived nine hundred years
Methus'lah lived nine hundred years
But who calls dat livin
When no gal will give in
To no man what's nine hundred years

I'm preachin' dis sermon to show
It ain't nece-ain't nece
Ain't nece-ain't nece
Ain't necessarily... so
