It Cannot Be is a song in Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie. It is sung by Jonah after God asks him to deliver His warning to Nineveh.

Lyrics

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 and 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
Joppah, 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...
