Work Me, Lord

Nick "The Greek" Gravenites aka "Gravy" b. 2 October 1938.

Work me Lord - Work me Lord.
Please don't you leave me
I feel so useless down here
With no one to love
Though I've looked everywhere
And I can't find me anybody to love
To feel my care.

So ah, oh, Work me Lord, Whoa use me Lord
Don't you know how hard it is
Tryin' to live all alone.
Every day I keep tryin' to move forward
But something is driving me, oh, back
Honey, something's trying to hold on to me
To my way of life.

So, So don't you forget me down here, Lord,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Oh, Oh don't you forget me, Lord.
Well I don't think I'm any very special
Kind of person down here, I know better
But I don't think you're gonna find anybody
Not anybody who could say that they tried like I tried
The worst you can say all about me
Is that I'm never satisfied. Whoa.

Whoa, oh, oh, Work me Lord, hmm, Use me Lord
Please, honey don't you leave me
I feel so useless down here.
I can't find me anybody to love me
And I've looked around
I've looked everywhere - everywhere
And I can't find me anyone to love
To feel my care.

So oh, Honey don't you go and leave me, Lord
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Honey, don't you go off and leave me, Lord.
Can I show you how hard it is
Tryin' to live when you're all alone.
Everyday I keep pushing
Keep trying to move forward
But something is driving me, oh, back
And something's trying to hold on to me
To my way of life, Why...

Oh please - Please, oh don't you go and
Forget me down here - Don't forget me, Lord.
I think that maybe you can ease me
Maybe I can help you - Said uh whoa...
Oh please - Oh please - Oh don't you go and leave me Lord
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, Whoa..., Oh, oh whoa... Whoa... Please!
Hmm, Please, don't you leave me, Lord. ¥Ç¥
