"Joseph Smith was Called a Prophet" is a song featured in the Season Seven episode, "All About Mormons".

Background

The song described the story of how the Church of Latter Day Saints, known as Mormons, was founded by Joseph Smith. It describes the founding of the church sarcastically, even singing "dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb" in the background. This was likely done due to lack of evidence to prove that Joseph Smith found the gold plates, as well as talked to God.

Lyrics

Joseph Smith was called a prophet
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
He started the Mormon religion
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb).
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
Joseph Smith was called a prophet-

(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
Many people believed Joseph
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
And that night he-ee saw an angel
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

Joseph Smith was called a prophet
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

He found the stones and golden plates
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
Even though nobody else ever saw them
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

And that's how the Book of Mormon was written
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
(Dumb dadumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
(Dumb dadumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
(Dahumb dahumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb duuumb, duuumb.)

Martin went home to his wife
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)
And showed her pages from the Book of Mormon
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

Lucy Harris smart smart smart
(Smart smart smart smart smart)

Martin Harris dumb dadumb-

Lucy Harris smart smart smart
Martin Harris dumb.
So Martin went on back to Smith
Said the pages had gone away
Smith got mad and told Martin
He needed to go pray
(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

(Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb)

Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.
