We Are Jonah Lyrics

And the round old fox, stepped up to make his speech
His ship was on the rocks, and rescue out of reach
Spotlit he stood, said what he thought he should
Half the crowd did laugh, though there was no joke
And soon the other half were swallowed up in smoke
A robber on the wing could be heard to sing the strangest thing

"Grandma, we are Jonah
Rolling along in the teeth of a whale"

Then the plane did land, for some it did not crash
From it emerged a man in trainers and mustache
Down he laid his load, upon the heated road
Then the road did part, and the tar did melt
He loosened up his heart, he tightened up his belt
Like a piece of string, then he began to sing like a pearly king, ooh

"Grandma, we are Jonah
Rolling along in the teeth of a whale"

Then the scene did shift, to a sun kissed sea
There was Montgomery Clift, Jonah, the whale and me
As the sun it set, Montgomery placed his bet
Then the whale did yawn and fell asleep in four
From dusk till dawn, you should have heard him snore
From Tierra del Fuego, to the Alaskan Snows, there she blows

Grandma, we are Jonah
Rolling along in the teeth of a whale

My dear old grandma, we are Jonah
Rolling along in the teeth of a whale
Grandma

We are Jonah
Rolling along in the teeth of a whale
