Jonah Was a Prophet is the 'big musical number' sung by Twippo (Archibald Asparagus) at the end of Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.

Lyrics

Archibald: When I was a boy I went to church back home in Arizona, and that is where I heard the tale of a man who's name was Jonah. Now Jonah was a prophet, but that's not why he's remembered. We tell the tale, cause in a whale, he nearly was dismembered.

Chorus

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Jonah was a prophet.

Archibald: Ooo ooo

Pirates: But he really never got it.

Archibald: Sad but true.

Pirates: If you've been watching you can spot it.

Archibald: A doodly doo

Pirates: He did not get the point.

Archibald: Compassion and mercy, from me to you and you to me, exactly what God wants to see, and yes that is the point!

Chorus

Archibald: Now Jonah set sail, on a pirate ship in a dreadful gale!

Pirates: Got eaten up by a giant whale, but managed not to be dead. You'd think he would learn a lot, from being saved from an awful spot, but the second chance that he had got, he didn't want to be spread. So poor old Jonah, now he's all alone-a, gotta use a megaphone-a to get it through to his head! Hey!

Chorus X2

Archibald: Now true in your life your probabaly don't ride on a camel, and you probably won't wake up inside a large aquatic mammal, but all the same like Jonah there is something you can do: Everyone deserves to get a second chance from you!

All: Compassion and mercy, from me to you and you to me, exactly what God wants to see, and yes that is the point!

Pirates: Jonah was a prophet.

Archibald: Ooo ooo.

Pirates: But he really never got it.

Archibald: Sad but true!

Pirates: Jonah was a prophet.

Archibald: Ooo ooo.

Pirates: But he really never got it.

Archibald: Sad but true!

All: JONAH WAS A PROPHET!
