Veggie Tales - Jonah Was A Prophet lyrics
When I was a boy I went to church back home in Arizona
And it was there I learned the tale of a man whose name was Jonah
now Jonah was a prophet, but that's not why he's remembered
They tell the tale, Cause in a whale he nearly was dismembered!
Jonah was a prophet
but he really never got it
sad but true!
and if you watch him you can spot it
he did not get the point!
Compassion and mercy from me to you and you to me
exactly what god wants to see and yes that is the point!
Now Johnah Set Sail On A Pirate ship
In a dreadful gale
Got eaten up by a giant whale
there is no more to be said
now poor old Jonah
and now he's all alone-ah
got to use a megaphone-ah
to get it through to his head-HEY!
now during your life you prob'ly don't ride on a camel
and you prob'ly won't wake up inside a large aquatic mammal
but now in your life there is something you can do
everyone deserves a second chance to come from you!
Compassion and merc from me to you and you to me
Exactly what god wants to see and yes that is the point!
