Alright With Beggin'

I got a spot at the bar at JoJo’s Place – To meet a friend from long ago

We were in love when we were babies – But today I really don’t know

Just exactly what she’ll be like – If the years have been unkind

But if my intuition’s running true to form – I’m gonna tell her what’s on my mind

 

Make me beg you, baby – Make me beg you, baby

Make me beg you, baby – Cause I’m alright with beggin’ tonight

 

I remember her words exactly – When she called me on the telephone

She never fell out of love & needed me back – And was tired of being all alone

I can’t tell you, people, truly why – She’d want a beat up old man like me

But I won’t give her a chance to change her mind – I’ll shout out on my bended knee

 

Make me beg you, baby – Make me beg you, baby

Make me beg you, baby – Cause I’m alright with beggin’ tonight

 

I felt the air move right next to me – Smelled the scent of her sweet perfume

I turned around, had to catch my breath – Her loveliness filled up the whole room

I told her, lord girl, I never fell out of love – And I need you back so doggone bad

I ain’t gonna make the mistake of losin’ again – The best woman I ever had

(I got to shout it out)

 

Make me beg you, baby – Make me beg you, baby

Make me beg you, baby – Cause I’m alright with beggin’ tonight

 

Make me beg you, baby – Make me beg you, baby

Make me beg you, baby – Cause I’m alright with beggin’ tonight
