It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
The things that yo' liable to read in the Bible
It ain't necessarily so

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

Oh, Jonah he lived in the whale
Oh, Jonah he lived in the whale
For he made his home in that fish's abdomen
Oh, Jonah he lived in the whale

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

It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
They tell all you children the devil's a villain
But 'taint necessarily so

To get into Heaven don't snap for a seven
Live clean, don't have no fault
Oh, I takes that Gospel whenever it's possible
But with a grain of salt

Methuselah lived nine hundred years
Methuselah lived nine hundred years
But who calls that livin' when no gal'll give in
To no man that's nine hundred years

I'm preachin' this sermon to show
It ain't nessa, ain't nessa
Ain't nessa, ain't nessa
It ain't necessarily so
