Lamentation of Christ
Annibale Carracci (1560-1609)

They crucified my Lord,
And He never said a mumbalin’ word;
They crucified my Lord,

Refrain

And He never said a mumbalin’ word.
Not a word, not a word, not a word.

They nailed Him to a tree,
And He never said a mumbalin’ word;
They nailed Him to a tree,

Refrain

They pierced Him in the side,
And He never said a mumbalin’ word;
They pierced Him in the side,

Refrain

The blood came trickalin’ down,
And He never said a mumbalin’ word;
The blood came trickalin’ down,

Refrain

He bowed His head and died,
And He never said a mumbalin’ word;
He bowed His head and died,

Refrain
