Bible tales with warnings for sinners who don't heed: "Get your baggage on the deck and don't forget to take your check For you can't steal on board, hide away." Verses concern Jonah and the whale, Moses and Pharoah, (Daniel, Noah, etc.)
I had some difficulty deciding whether to include the Cox "Jonah" song here. It's completely straight, and lacks the lyrics of most of the other versions (including the "hideaway" lines). But it uses the same (somewhat uncommon) metrical pattern, and it's on the same theme, and I don't know of any other similar texts. One or the other song may be a rewrite, but I'm listing both here.
All the texts, of course, are based on the Biblical book of Jonah. The humorous versions exaggerate; Cox's text stays fairly close to the actual content of chapters 1 and 2 of Jonah (except for, at times, calling the fish a "whale"; the Hebrew Bible emphatically says "fish"). - RBW
