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?
