[Porgy and Bess] It ain't necessarily so It ain't necessarily so De things dat yo' liable 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 and dieth Li'l David was small but oh my Oh Jonah he lived in de whale Oh Jonah he lived in de whale For 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 'til ole Pharaoh's daughter She fished him she says from that stream It ain't necessarily so It ain't necessarily so Dey tell all you chillun de debble's a villain But 'taint 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'll give in To no man what's nine hundred years I'm preachin' dis sermon to show It ain't nessa, ain't nessa Ain't nessa, ain't nessa It ain't necessarily so (Contributed by Nancy - August 2004)
