Help the poor
Won't you help poor me?
Have a heart, won't you, baby
Listen to my plea
I need you so much, I need your care
Need all the loving, baby, you can spare

Help the poor
Oh, baby won't you 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
Won't you help poor me?
Have a heart, won't you, baby?
Listen to my plea
Well, I lost my courage till I found you
You got what it takes, babe, to pull me through

Help the poor
Oh, baby, won't you help poor me?
I'm in trouble don't you see
Only your love can save me
Help the poor, help the poor
Help the poor, help the poor
Help the poor, help the poor
Help the poor, help the poor
Help the poor, help the poor
Help the poor, help the poor
