The Lyrics

Hey Job, why you disobeying that Lord of yours?
Hey Job, I said why you dissin' the Lord's great guiding hand?, oh
I'm goin' down maybe to Galilee
You know I ain't a messin' 'round with the sins of man
Yeah, i'm goin' down to where it be shady
You know i don't care about all those evil men
Huh! I ain't no fool

Hey Job, i heard you went on out to sea
You're out to sea now
Hey Job, i heard you went on out to sea
You left behind the dry ground yeah!
Yes, I did, I left it

I won't get caught, I'm running from the Lord. The Lord
Huh, yes I did I sailed off
You know i done went sailed away, running from the Lord
But there was a big storm
And I shuddered
Oh No
He found me out here at sea baby!
Storm Coming
Mad Sailors

Hey job
Heard you were in a great big fish, it a swallowed
Hey Job, i said
Heard you were in a great big fish, it a swallowed
I'm goin' back to land
I'll be in here for three days
I'm goin' back to land
Stomach acid burning me
Should've known God would find me
And so now I'm gonna
I'm gonna get people to listen to me
You better believe His word now
Fish throwing up now
Hey, Job
You better preach on high
Listen everybody
Hey hey Job

Interesting idea, but it didn't work. And, as the Kinks would say, the Biblical figure who got swallowed by a fish was Jonah, Jo-Jo-Jo-Jo-Jonah, Jo-Jo-Jo-Jo-Jonah!

Don't sweat the small stuff. Most people today wouldn't even know that Job and Jonah were in the Bible let alone which one did what, so I'd say you are safe with this and it was a great read just the same.
