The Lyrics

Once in a whale,
God placed Jonah
For his mission, disobeyed
Swallowed, three days, he stayed
Until spewed out

Once in a whale,
God taught Jonah
The lesson we all must learn
To Him we should always turn
When we're in doubt..

In life's troubling turmoil
This great tale's meant to say
We all can avoid turmoil
If we seek God, and pray..

We'll never fail
To find happiness
And a good life that's long
If we recall Jonah's "wrong"
Once in a whale

Once in a whale
