"Scandalize My Name" (karaoke)

"Scandalize My Name" (sheet music)


I met my brother the other day; I gave him my right hand.
An' jus' as soon as ever my back was turned, he scandalize' my name.
Now you call that a brother? No! No! You call that a brother? No! No!
Call that a brother? No! No! Scandalize' my name.

I met my sister the other day; I gave her my right hand.
An' jus' as soon as ever my back was turned, she, too, scandalize' my name.
Now you call that a sister? No! No! You call that a sister? No! No!
Call that a sister? No! No! Scandalize' my name.

I met my preacher the other day; I gave him my right hand.
An' jus' as soon as ever my back was turned, he, too, scandalize' my name.
Now you call that religion? No! No! You call that religion? No! No!
Call that religion? No! No! Scandalize' my name.
