Hey, don't write your song 'bout spit
It's only in you head to fill your mouth -- well, look out, Mom
The Bible says Christ healed a sightless man
With only dirt and spit He twirled Himself -- He cured this way

He just takes some grime, lets it swirl in the spittle
Rubs his eyes with it and then the man could see just fine
'Cause he left everything to Jesus Christ in John 9

Hey, you know this song is strange
I know you're droolin' at the thought of more (thought of more) -- I know I am
So get a Bible out and just brace yourself
Because in chapter eight in the book of Mark (book of Mark)
There's somewhere else

He just takes some blind little-known individual
Rubs his eyes with His spit, then He says, "Are you alright?"
Then the man said it looked like trees -- oh my! Hold tight!
It just takes two times -- didn't have to double-dribble
Touched the guy just once again and he could see just fine
Yes and the medicine was real saliva, no lie

Hey, don't write this song off yet
There's one more incident that we left (we left out) so look that up
This dude was deaf (both mute and deaf)
Christ put his fingers in (He put his fingers in)
And don't worry 'bout the the spitting part (spitting part) I'm gonna say

He just takes saliva -- yeah, the Lord spit a little
Then applied it to the deaf man's tongue and Jesus sighed
And said "Ephphatha" and his ears were quite alright
So just take some time in the Word, read a little
Of the Bible -- Mark chapter seven's where you'll meet the guy
Then read the rest of it you'll see the light
