If you don't bend you'll have to break
It's good advise but a little too late
Nothin' but trouble everywhere I go, yeah
What I've been through you never know
Got me down on my bendin' knee
Weepin' and bendin' like a willow tree

I'm not lyin' it's not a fake
You can tell by the look on my face
Just so much a man can take
Sooner or later he's gotta break
Yes, I'm down on my bendin' knee
Weeping an' bendin' like a willow tree

Like a bitter pill that ya have to take
I'm beggin' you baby, you say it's too late
For goodness sakes please give me a break
Just a little more that I can take
Got me down on my bendin' knee
Weepin' and bendin' like a willow tree
