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
