It Ain't Necessarily So

Original and similar lyrics
It ain't necessarily so It ain't necessarily so The things that you're liable To read in the Bible It ain't necessarily so Now David was small but, oh my Yes, David was small but, oh my He fought big Goliath Who lay, lay down and dieth Yes, David was small But, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa my You've ever heard 'bout Jonah? He lived in a whale You've ever heard 'bout Jonah? He lived, lived in a whale And he made his home in that fish's abdomen Yes Jonah, he lived in a whale To get into heaven Don't snap for a seven Live clean and don't have no fault And take me, yeah, take that gospel Whenever it's possible But with a little grain of salt Methuselah lived 900 years Methuselah lived 9,900 years But tell me who, who calls that living When no gal is given to no man What's 900 years? That's why I say that it ain't It ain't necessarily It ain't, no, necessarily It ain't, it ain't necessarily so Ain't necessarily so Ain't necessarily so Ain't necessarily Ain't necessarily Ain't necessarily

It All Comes Back Someday

JOHN HIATT "Mystic Pinball"
You shot bolt upright in the middle of the dark As she drove her motorcycle through the trailer park A hundred miles an hour, no helmet on her head 'Til that concrete drain was runnin' cherry red Used to sit and drink coffee at the Waffle House Had to spin up her wheels just to get it out [Chorus:] Now it all comes back to haunt you Yeah, it comes back anytime it wants to It all comes back through the holes and the cracks Where you thought you let it slip away Yeah, it all comes back some day Feelin' bad about yourself, you were seven years old So you got her in the bushes where you had some control Tied up her hands so she couldn't fight fair Threw a jar of silver model car paint in her hair After all these years does the shoe still fit? Have you only just now started wearin' it? [Chorus] The way she combed her hair Straight across a minute where you could have died You thought love was something that you had to hide To survive All those lives you thought you lived away There ain't a one showin' any kinda sign of decay They're all stacked on your head like infinity's crown The truth is you ain't never lived anything down You're bound up forever to the blood on the trail To the tires on the gravel to the rust on the rail [Chorus]


As large as life she stood there Kissed my cheek and called my old nickname And though several years had passed Both of us still looked quite the same I said Hi, relaxed a bit then asked her how she'd been all these years She told me she was feeling fine and came to see a friend who lived up here She told me she had finished school And then went on to college for a year I asked if she had married And slowly down her cheek there came a tear She said just an itchy eye it must be the weather way up here Told her I can't stand the cold It freezes me and I can't feel my ears We talked a bit about Mobile And thought about how it has never changed I told her I was comin' home to spend some time And hoped it wouldn't rain She asked if she could see me then And we could spend some time now and then Because I lived so far away Was still no chance why we could not be friends I drove her to the waiting plane And watched that big jet streaking through the sky Thought about the sad young girl And the time that I just saw her cry That flame must still be burning bright I think I'll catch a later flight today It's time for me to go on home and spend a day or two down by the bay

Bang, Bang, Bang

You're helpless and hopeless You want to help out the homeless But you've got problems You're selfish and worthless And you have no fucking purpose You're a cancer causing, cancer having slob Whoa, Who-oa, Whoa There are morals that conflict with orals That conflict with annals, that believe in angels Angels are hating on you Good is the absence of evil And evil is the absence of good There is an axis of evil rolling into this neighborhood With the sound of gun shots Bang! Bang! Bang! Whoa, Whoa, Whoa It was then that I found I am vampire I have fangs fucking 15 inches long And the sanguinary sweetness of stealing someones blood Feels so good I am compelled to sing this song At night when I retire to my coffin, to sleep for a hundred years or more All you people that I know will have died long ago and your children will have died 10 years before Whoa, Whoa, Whoa

Tender Years

When the moon hung soft and low, Catchin' stardust in the light You held me closer and closer There was magic in the night A sweet love song, a melody that I still can recall Two young hearts filled with dreams To walk away with it all Whoa, whoa tender years Won't you wash away my tears How I wish you were here Please don't go, tender years A summer love, a beach romance Sought her kisses in the sand Two young hearts filled with fire Lost in never-neverland. Whoa, whoa tender years Won't you wash away my tears How I wish you were here Please don't go, tender years

26 Years, 17 Days

LYFE JENNINGS "Lyfe 268-192"
[1st Verse:] I was looking for God at my grandmother's house underneath the cushions on the couch I looked all around side to side up and down that man was no where to be found So I called my grandmama on the phone said old lady you best get home cause God aint where you said he would be and there's something that I really need to speak to him about immediately She said boy tell Granny what's wrong is there something I can do I said big mama now it's a sensitive issue and Lord knows I don't wanna worry you but I need somebody to talk to [Chorus:] It's done been 26 years 17 days been to 5 different prisons got 2 babies on the way and they say it'll be a waste of time to pray seeing that I'm going to hell anyway [2x] [2nd Verse:] I done smoked weed with the best of ya'll shot at all the rest of ya'll my heart hurts like an old man with high cholesterol the preacher said that I'm the dirtiest dude he ever saw shouldn't even be livin' and he a Christian Shoulda been dead like 17 times for 17 crimes I committed took 'em all to trial and got accuited Left wavin' my middle finger in the air whispered in the prosecutor's ear, yeah I did it I done stole everything from dreams to wedding rings auctioned off my soul for material things but lately its been kinda botherin' me I guess that turtle always catches up with the rabbit eventually [Chorus 2x/Bridge:] Somebody loves you baby whoa whoa whoa somebody loves you baby [4x]
