boss i just met the

strongest mudbug in

the church pew

underworld he was the

top bug in the pro

mudbug wrestling circuit

his name is ted the

million dollar mudbug

wrestler and he s

afraid of neither bug

nor mouse

before he met jesus

he was a pretty

worldly mudbug boss

i was a classic scrooge

in wrestling the former

million dollar wrestler told

a group of teenage bugs

and mice i was the villain

the bad boy the heel

but the money was good

i wheeled and dealed

my motto and my theme

was every bug s got a

price from a million dollars

to a box of rice

when i was at the top of

my game i had it all fans

fortune and fame but even

then says he i came up

lame i wasn t satisfied i

was empty inside

i tried everything to fill

that spot i ran around

with high-falutin ladybugs

became a sewer water sot

got high on poppy seed

slugs and tried to be the

top mudbug on the

wrestling rug

did it work asks freddie

the flea who was impressed

by ted s notoriety

no it didn t says he

it only added to my

misery i sank to the

bottom of my soul

i needed some help

some way to be whole

but everywhere i looked

there was no hope only

leaky holes

what was your toughest

bout asks sammy

salamander envisioning

some mighty lout

you would think my baddest

bout would be against

andre the giant centipede

says he but as bad as that

was it couldn t compete

with the toughest opponent

i ve ever had to meet

the toughest match i ve

ever faced says he was with

god cause i struggled with

him indefinitely we wrestled

and wrestled for my soul s

eternity and eventually like

jacob to him i clung

my life in shatters my heart

undone

did it make a difference

says me in abject curiosity

absolutely says he the greatest

choice i ever made was choosing

jesus all these worldly honors

will fade fame and fortune i ll

gladly trade for the riches of

his forgiveness and grace up

in heaven laid

i love god now with all my heart

says he nothing gives me more

joy than seeing bugs and mice

set free from sin and misery

that void in my life was filled

with jesus he s the one who

forgives us lives in us and

frees us

so now i ve got the greatest

tag team partner in history

says he with him you ll never

lose you ll always walk in victory

from now throughout eternity
