Help the poor
Won't you help poor me
I need help from you baby
Need it desperately
I need you so much
I need you're care
I need all the loving baby you can spare

Help the poor
Oh, baby help poor me
Say you will
Say you'll help me on
I can't make it no further
In this world alone
Baby I'm beggin' with tears in my eyes
For your loving, don't you realize
I need help oh baby
Help poor me

You are my inspiration
You could make me be a king
But if you don't come to my rescue
I couldn't ever be anything

Help the poor
Baby Help poor me
have a heart won't you baby
listening to my plea
I lost all my courage til I found you
You got what it takes baby
To get me through

Help the poor
Help poor me
I'm in trouble don't you see
Only your love can save me
Help the poor help the poor
