American Ballads and Folk Songs
Jonah was an immigrant, so runs the Bible tale,
He took a steerage passage in a transatlantic whale j
Now, Jonah in the belly of the whale was quite compressed, So Jonah pressed the button, and the whale he did the rest.
Young folks, old folks, everybody come,
Join our darky Sunday School, and make yourself to hum,
♦Text furnished by Paul B. Camp and John W. Loveland, Jr.
