From the recording Alright With Beggin'

Lyrics

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
