Lyrics
I want to stay here
But I ain't worthy
You are to descent to understand
For when I see him
He hypnotizes me
When he takes hold of me
With his hard hand

Someday, I know he's comin' back
To call me
He's gonna handle me and hold me so
It's gonna be like dyin', Porgy
Deep inside me,
But when he calls I have to go

I love you Porgy
Don't let him take me
Don't let him handle me
And drive me mad
If I can stay here, and you would keep me

I love you Porgy
Don't let him take me
Don't let him handle me
And drive me mad
If you can keep me, I wants to stay here

With you forever and I'd be glad
I love you Porgy
