[Intro]
G

[Verse]
Em DAnd the round old fox, stepped up to make his speech
Bm EmHis ship was on the rocks, and rescue out of reach
Am DSpotlit he stood, said what he thought he should
Em DHalf the crowd did laugh, though there was no joke
Bm EmAnd soon the other half were swallowed up in smoke
Am DA robin on the wing, could be heard to sing, the strangest thing
[Chorus]
G DGrandma, we are Jonah
C DRolling along in the teeth of a whale
[Verse]
Em DThen the plane did land, for some it did not crash
Bm EmFrom it emerged a man, in trainers and moustache
Am DDown he laid his load, upon the heated road
Em DThen the road did part, and the tar did melt
Bm EmHe loosened up his heart, he tightened up his belt
Am DLike a piece of string, then he began to sing, like a pearly king
[Chorus]
G DAhh, Grandma, we are Jonah
C Em DRolling along in the teeth of a whale
[Instrumental] D C A Dm G Cm D [Verse]
Em DThen the scene did shift, to a sun kissed sea
Bm EmThere was Montgomery Clift, Jonah, the Whale and me
Am DAs the sun it set, Montgomery placed his bet
Em DThen the whale did yawn, and fell asleep in four
Bm EmFrom dusk till dawn, you should have heard him snore
Am DFrom Tierra-Del-Fuego, to the Alaskan snows, there she blows
[Chorus]
G DGrandma, we are Jonah
C DRolling along in the teeth of a whale
[Chorus]
G DMy dear old Grandma, we are Jonah
C DRolling along in the teeth of a whale
[Outro]
G D C D G D C DGrandma
N.C.We are Jonah
N.C.Rolling along in the teeth of a whale
