33. He Never Said a Mumbalin' Word

1 They crucified my Lord, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
They crucified my Lord, and He never said a mumbalin’ word.
Not a word, not a word, not a word.

2 They nailed Him to a tree, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
They nailed Him to a tree, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
Not a word, not a word, not a word.

3 They pierced Him in the side, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
They pierced Him in the side, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
Not a word, not a word, not a word.

4 The blood came streamin’ down, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
The blood came streamin’ down, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
Not a word, not a word, not a word.

5 He hung His head and died, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
He hung His head and died, and He never said a mumbalin’ word;
Not a word, not a word, not a word.
