about

The Mumblers Los Angeles, California

The Mumblers were born out of necessity after a lengthy stay in New Orleans during the early half 2012. The dark, damp bars of Frenchman St. and the spirit of those who inhabit them have a way of steeping deep into ones pores.

Our music is dedicated to those in every city who continue to keep the human spirit alive and well. Thanks for the inspiration.

Track Name: Black Magic
I say it on a six string
I say it on a microphone
You better stay away now
Cause ain’t nobody home
I say it on the rooftops
I say it on the streets below
You’re a dirty rotten mumbler
Don’t wanna hear no more

Your black magic, black magic

I’ll say it in the pool hall
I’ll say it at the county fair
Don’t know where you came from
But you’d better get back there
What I say, what I say now
I said it before
You’re a dirty rotten mumbler
Don’t wanna hear no more
Track Name: Like A No Good Crook
I wanna drive fast
And I wanna take it slow
When I take the top down
I can’t say no
Your body is a blessing
Yours is a curse
I need an overcoat
Right there in my purse
I pull you in closer
Give me the squeeze
You’re like a hot rod motor
So turn the key
I know I’m not the first
But you’ll be the last
What I did last week
Let the past be the past

Got you shoutin’ & scratchin’
That ain’t a lie
Lotta girls stay frozen
I ain’t never been shy
I ain’t got money
You don’t need cash
But I’d rob a bank
That sounds like a blast
You’d be my Bonnie
You’d be my Clyde
We’d out run ‘em all
Till the day we died
You know you knock me out
Like a right hand hook
And you stole my heart
Like a no good crook

Like a no good crook

Now you be the husband
You be the bride
And when we get older
I’ll still take the ride
I don’t need diamonds
Rubies or gold
When God made us
He broke the mold
People make stories
Let ‘em talk
And if they don’t stop
I’m cocked and locked
You know you knock me out
Like a right hand hook
And you stole my heart
Like a no good crook
Track Name: Long After I Die
Go tell it on a mountain
Go tell it up on high
I've been around the world
And I have seen the other side
You can smell it on my breath
You can see it in my hide
I ain't never been no quitin' kind
And you doubters, you shall find

Like the burning of tobacco
Like the sting of distilled rye
I'll be around, long after I die

Like a ruin I'll remain
The stars we are the same
I am a hulking mass of scorching gas
I am the guider on the planes
And in my time of death
You will now that I won't rest
Cause I am of the earth you'll hear me curse
And this life is just my first

Like the burning of tobacco
Like the sting of distilled rye
I'll be around, long after I die

I will linger
I will moan
Cause my heart and soul
Are both made up of stone

Go tell it on a mountain
Go tell it up on high
I've been around the world
And I have seen the other side
You can smell it on my breath
You can see it in my hide
I ain't never been no quitin' kind
And you doubters, you shall find
Track Name: Never Leavin' You (For Good)
My baby miss me when I’m gone
She writes me all the time
My baby hates being alone
She can’t keep me up out off her mind

My baby loves to hear my voice
It’s never insincere
She calls me on the telephone
I whisper in her tiny ear

I said hey
I said hey, hey
I said I’m never leavin’ you
For good

My baby wears out all her shoes
Pacing across her room
Holding her breath until she’s blue
Hoping I get home real soon

My baby got a new tattoo
A lasting sentiment
It says I’ll always wait for you
Cause our love is permanent
Track Name: The Grind
These days I don’t know
Where I’m going
And I don’t know if I am blind
But my eyes are open
And I can’t find the signs

Sometimes I find
That I get stuck in the grind
And I can’t help
But go out of my mind

Everybody’s got it bad
And I know,
You’ve got it worse than me
But you don’t know
I’ve got the blues
And I can’t get no peace of mind

Sometimes I find
That I get stuck in the grind
And I can’t help
But go out of my mind

Life’s got a funny way
Of getting you down sometimes
When you think it’s picking you up
It’s really pushing you back around
And during all those lonely days
And all those sleepless nights
When you think you won’t ever
Find the light
Put this on, sing along
Until you feel alright

Hey na na, hey na na…
Let go
I ain’t gonna stand for this no more
Come on baby just let go

Sometimes I find
That I get stuck in the grind
And I can’t help
But go out of my mind

And do you feel alright...?
