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

Little David was small, but oh my
David was small, but oh my
He fought Goliath, who lie down and dieth
David was small, but oh my

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

Little Moses was found in a stream
Little Moses was found in a stream
He floated on water 'till ole Pharaoh's daughter
She fished him, she said, from that stream

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

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
