They call me Mr. Pitiful
Baby that's my name now oh
They call me Mr. Pitiful that's how I got my fame
But people just don't understand
What makes a man feel so blue
They call me Mr Pitiful 'cause I lost someone just like you.

The call me Mr. Pitiful
This everybody know now
They call me Mr. Pitiful most every place I go.
But nobody seems to understand now,
How can a man sing such a sad song
Ooo when he lost everything, when he lost everything that he had.

How can I explain to you
