"Necessary Evil" as written by Richard Wayne Jones and Jeremy N. Spillman....
[chorus]
Necessary evil, necessary evil
Of keeping round ever for asking yourselves
She said evil, necessary evil
Kept out a chance and ask

I didn’t took no other
As far as I can see
So heavenly father
Have a mercy on me

Give me the strength
To deal with every fool I see, yeah
Try not enough to harm
Or be mean on me

[chorus]
Necessary evil, necessary evil
Of keeping down ever for asking yourselves
She said evil, necessary evil
Kept out a chance and ask

Come on everybody tell ‘em all now
I didn’t do no wrong, no I ain’t do no wrong
As far as I can see, as far as I can see
So heavenly father, so heavenly father,
Have a mercy on me, have a mercy, have a mercy on me
Give me the strength, give me the strength
To do what whatever I could, to do what whatever I could, I see
Try not to be to harsh, try not to get to harsh,
On merely old me

[chorus]

Is comin’ to get you, right about now
Ladies and gentlemen, Osmond’s Septet

[chorus]

[scatting]
