Wilson, Brian - It Ain't Necessarily So Lyrics




It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
The things that your liable
To read in the Bible,
It ain't necessarily so.

David was small, but oh my
Little David was small, but oh my
He fought Big Goliath
Who lay down an' dieth
David was small, but oh my

To get into Heaven
Don't snap for a sebben!
Live clean! Don' have no fault!
Oh, I takes that gospel
Whenever it's pos'ble,
With a grain of salt.

Oh Jonah, he lived in a whale,
Oh Jonah, he lived in a whale,
He made his home in
That fish's abdomen.
Oh Jonah, he lived in a whale.

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

To get into Heaven
Don't snap for a sebben!
Live clean! Don' have no fault!
Oh, I takes that gospel
Whenever it's pos'ble,
With a grain of salt.

It ain't necessarily so
Well it ain't necessarily so
They tells all you children
The devil's a villain,
But it ain't necessarily so!

    It's both, a play on words, the devil is being libeled, and you are liable to read it in the bible.

    My favorite lyric in this song is the use and pronounciation of the word 'abdomen" LOL LOL

    Roddy Moore

    or gospel and 'possble! That is the Gershwins at work. That Brain can make it credible is a tip to his talent.
