Throw Jonah Overboard!

God has already prepared a big sea fish;
So, throw Jonah overboard.
You will make promises to this God
After you throw Jonah overboard.
The wild squall will finally be calmed
When you throw Jonah overboard.
Pray to God for what you're about to do
And throw Jonah overboard.

You won't be able to row back to land;
So throw Jonah overboard.
Though the sea is raging violently,
Throw Jonah overboard!
The guilty man told you what to do;
So throw Jonah overboard.
Ask him why the ship's about to break;
Then, throw Jonah overboard.

Cast your lots to see on whom it falls;
Then, will you throw Jonah overboard?
Tell him to call on his God for help;
Later, you'll throw Jonah overboard.
Go below deck to wake the deep sleeper
And throw Jonah overboard.
Don't throw your cargo off the ship.
Throw Jonah overboard!

No need to pray to any other god;
Just throw Jonah overboard,
For the God of earth who sent this storm
Wants you to throw Jonah overboard.
He told you he was running from God.
So, throw Jonah overboard!
Or give back his fare to save yourself,
And don't let Jonah board.
