80. They Crucified My Lord (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 streaming’ 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.
