No, it cannot be.
Your messages are meant for me
and my brothers
We are your chosen people
And Nineveh well, they're not!

There must be some mistake
A big misunderstanding
It's really hard to take
How could you be so demanding?
For years I've been your messenger from Moresheth to Gath
But Nineveh should get no chance to turn
They've earned your wrath!

No, it cannot be
Your messages are meant for me
and my brothers
We are your chosen people
And Nineveh well, they're not!

We're the good guys!
They're the bad guys!
Please, don't send me there with a message of your mercy!
Damascus or Jerusalem, I'll be there in a minute!
Any town in Israel, just ask me! I'll be in it!

Shiloh, Gilgal, Jericho - just say the word!
But Nineveh, that is just absurd!

Joppa, Aphek, Jezreel - they're all just fine -
But Nineveh...
Oh, Nineveh...
No! Nineveh is where I draw the line!

No, it cannot be
Your messages
are meant for me
