The Whale Has Swallowed Me
Hugh Laurie Lyrics


They say the Whale swallowed Jonah
Out in the deep blue sea
Sometimes I get that feeling
That same old Whale has swallowed me

The sun rise in the East
Goes down in the West
Sometimes I get that feeling
Every creature needs some rest
I believe the Whale got sick
That's why I have this blues
I do believe one day
He will finally turn me loose

Now if I live
I pray, I don't get killed
I do believe one day
I will crawl out of here

You the MAN!!!!!!

Hugh Laurie was raised Protestant so it isn't surprising he reflects some of those themes in his music.

Key Of The Wolf

Yeah, he just picked songs by musicians he respected. Said it himself.
