“The Big Bob”.

Oh! some folks jump up and down all night,
At a d-a-n-c-e.
While others go to church to show their,
brand new h-a-t.
They smear their face with a great big dab,
Of p-a-i-n-t.
And then they laugh at us because we’re s-a-v-e-d.

Chorus:
G-l-o-r-y I’m s-a-v-e-d I’m h-a-p-p-y to know I’m
f-r-ee, G-l-o-r-y- the chain of this I am I’m
h-a-p-p-y- to know that I am Christ within.

These girls who live in our town so n-i-c-e,
They bob their hair in the finest style
with a s-h-a-v-e. And on each finger place
a r-i-n-g, all there goes in the Bible knows
We’re s-a-v-e-d.
