"Good Book" as written by and Hal Stanley Irving Taylor....
That's what the good book says
That's what the good book says
And nothin's gonna hurt you
If you're livin' it right
That's what the good book says

A-Jonas ya know
Was lower than low
A-headin' down deeper than he wanted to go
A-Jonas was stuck inside of a whale
Just like a prison
And no bail

He wouldn't give up
He wouldn't say die
Had someone a-watching him
From way up high

He called on the Lord
To help him get free
The whale spit right outta the sea

That's what the good book says
That's what the good book says
And nothin's gonna hurt you
If you're livin' it right
That's what the good book says

David was small
No bigger than me
He fought old Goliath
Who was eight-foot three
Goliath was strong
Goliath was brave
And everybody muttered
Poor Dave

His chances were slim
The future was dim
But he had a little extra goin' for him
With only a rock
And the help of the Lord
He laid Goliath like a smorgasbord

That's what the good book says
That's what the good book says
And nothin's gonna hurt you
If you're livin' it right
That's what the good book says

Sampson was tough
As twenty marines
When he met the army of the Philistines
A thousand of them
The battles were led
And everyone figured
(Uh oh)
Sam's dead

A thousand to one
Why that's murder to see
But Sam never ever thought of meetin' defeat
With faith in the Lord
A-well he wasn't alone
He clobbered?
With just a hunk of bone

(That's what the good book says)
That's what the good book says
(That's what the good book says)
That's what the good book says

You can always find
When is in doubt
Right?
Well, it's gotta come out

That's what the good book says
That's what the good book says
And nothin's gonna hurt you
If you're livin' it right
That's what the good book says
