    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 !
