Belly of the Whale
Burning Sensations Lyrics


A nice breeze blows in
Whenever the big fella
Cracks a grin
And when the time and the pace is right,
We sit down,
Sip some bouillabaisse

Ahhh, I've gonna have me
A little fun
I've got a candle, I can get
A lot of reading done

Somewhere the sun is shining
(Shining, shining, shining)
On this world
But not for me
Two lovers' hearts a-rising
(Rising, rising, rising, rising)
Oh, how long before I'm free?

Ah, yes, I
Feel like Jonah
In the belly of the whale
I get so lonely
In the belly of the whale

(Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
Yeah, I feel like Jonah
In the belly of the whale
(Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
And I say now,
If we swim faster
(We're sure to come back)

Ahhh, you didn't please everyone
Got thrown off the boat
Before the trip was done
So with a smile on your face,
You disappeared
Without a trace
(Whoo)

Ahhh, I've gonna have us
A little fun
(Wow, down, down, down)
I've got a candle, we can get
A lot of reading done

Somewhere the sun is shining
(Shining, shining, shining)
On this world
But not for me
Two lovers' hearts a-rising
(Rising, rising, rising, rising)
Oh, how long before I'm free?

Ah, yes, I
Feel like Jonah
In the belly of the whale
Gotta keep my head up now
If I wanna come back
It gets so lonely
In the belly of the whale
You wanna know you belong here
But you've only got trapped
Hey!

(Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
Don't you feel like Jonah
In the belly of the whale?
(Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
But I say now,
If we swim faster
(We're sure to come back)

Come back, come back,
Come back, come back, come back, come...

Somewhere the sun is shining
On this world
But not for me
Two lovers' hearts a-rising
(Rising, rising, rising, rising)
Oh, how long before I'm free?

Ah, yes, I...
(Yes I, yes I, yes I, yes I, yes I, yes I...)

I feel like Jonah
In the belly of the whale
Gotta keep my head up now
If I wanna come back
I get so lonely
In the belly of the whale
You wanna know you belong here
Yet you've only got trapped

(Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
Yeah, it feels like Jonah
In the belly of the whale
(Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh-oh)
Did I tell you now?
If we swim faster
(We're sure to come back)

Come back, come back, come back, come back, come back...

Uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh, uh-oh-oh
Whoooooooo-whoo

Anybody here because of shelter at home orders/getting stir crazy amidst the ensuing responses to Coronavirus? I feel like Jonah in the belly of the whale when I'm cooped up in the house all day for days.

@O' FISHELY I went thru kinda similar in 2016 but without the acreage and with a phone - that I wished I didnt have so I wouldnt have to explain my situation or give updates to anyone.
There was an open broadcom internet connection that I could hook up to if I sat by window. Without that..... I dont know what I would have done!
I always have liked solitude, though.

@karen.a I read a lot, but I do that anyway. I couldn't get any local news, only the nearest city's news. That meant I had to drive to see what was open. I once spent 3 months alone like that but also with no phone. I lived near the mountains and had 1 acre so there was more to do. By the end of 3 months with no human contact I got quite lonely. I was ready to go out to eat with the first person I met on the street. That surprised me because I enjoy being alone most of the time. It takes me about 8 days to miss my favorite people if I'm not busy now.

@O' FISHELY Actually, it sounds interesting.

3 months with no tv or internet. Just the radio and my fish. It was freaky.

@AJtheory It gets so lonely in the belly of the whale.

Thank you so much for posting this full version with clean audio. I only had a copy recorded from the video on YT which is severely lacking in fidelity.
