Jonah Was A Prophet is a song from Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.

Lyrics

(Archibald): When I was a boy I went to church back home in Arizona And it was there I learned the tale of a man whose name was Jonah now Jonah was a prophet, but that's not why he's remembered They tell the tale, Cause in a whale he nearly was dismembered!

(Pirates): Jonah was a prophet (oo-ooh) but he really never got it (sad but true) and if you watch him you can spot it (a-doodley-doo) he did not get the point!

(Archibald): Compassion and mercy from me to you and you to me exactly what god wants to see and yes that is the point!

CHORUS

(Archibald): Now Jonah set sail on a pirate ship In a dreadful gale\

(Pirates): Got eaten up by a giant whale there is no more to be said You think he would learn a lot From being saved from an awful spot With a second chance that he had got He didn't want to be spread now poor old Jonah and now he's all alone-ah got to use a megaphone-ah to get it through to his head-HEY!

CHORUS

(Archibald): now during your life you probably don't ride on a camel and you probably won't wake up inside a large aquatic mammal but now in your life there is something you can do everyone deserves a second chance to come from you!

(Pirates): Compassion and mercy from me to you and you to me Exactly what God wants to see

And yes that is the point!

Jonah was a prophet(Ooh ooh)

But he really never got it(Sad but true)

Jonah was a prophet(Ooh ooh)

But he really never got it(Sad but true)

Jonah was a prophet, YEAH!
