You can't save me
You can't save a wretch like me
When she was seventeen
She married a preacher man
And she settled down
In a little part of town
Followed him all around
Having little babies
Singing in a little church
In a little ghost town
She's so happy
(I don't want to keep up, I can't keep up)
She's so happy, keeping up
(I don't wanna keep up, keeping up with the Jones)
Finally she told me
Grandpa Dan traveled
Playing on the road
With Nat King Cole
And he womanized
Staying up all night
Cruisin' up around the town
From town to town, to town
Let me go, ahh, hurricane
Just let me go, ahh, I'm going to care
Why don't you be a Jones
Like your sister and your brother Noel?
When are you gonna be a Jones
Just like Utah and dad, God bless his soul
I've got the William's blood in me
I've got the William's blood in me
I've got the William's blood in me
I've got the William's blood in me
In me, in me, in me
Running though my veins
William's blood in me
In a room full of doves
I'm waiting for the angels
Spreading my wings
So I can fly
Let me fly, hurricane
(You can't save a wretch like me)
Let me fly, ahh, hurricane
Just let me go, ooh, hurricane
William's hurricane
Why don't you be a Jones
Like your sister and your brother Noel?
I say when are you gonna be a Jones
Just like Utah and dad, God bless his soul, oh
I've got the William's blood in me
I've got the William's blood in me
I've got the William's blood in me
(I'll never change)
I've got the William's blood in me
Ooh, let me go
I've got the William's blood in me
I'll never change
Let me go, oh, I'll never change
Let me go, never change, never change
Let me go, oh, oh, so wretched
Let me go
(I don't wanna keep up, I can't keep up)
William's hurricane
Let me go
(I don't wanna keep up, I can't keep up)
I've got the William's blood in me
Let me go
(I don't wanna keep up, I can't keep up)
Let me go
(I don't wanna keep up, I can't keep up)
I've got the William's blood in me
Let me go
(I don't wanna keep up, I can't keep up)
Let me go
(I don't wanna keep up, I can't keep up)
I've got the William's blood in me
Amazing Grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
