"Beggin'" as written by and Bob/farina Gaudio....
Ooh
Put your loving hand out, baby
I'm beggin'!

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out darlin'

Ridin' high, when I was king
Played it hard and fast 'cause I had everything
Walked away, wonderin' then
Would easy come and easy go, when it would end

So why anytime I bleed, ya let me go
Anytime I reach, ya get me yo
Anytime I seek, ya let me know
But I planted that seed, just let me go

I'm on my knees while I'm beggin'
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
I got my arms so spread, I hope that my heart gets fed
Matter of fact girl I'm beggin' you

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out darlin'

I need you to understand
Tried so hard to be your man
The kind of man you want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again

An empty shell I used to be
Shadow of my life was hangin' over me
A broken man but I don't know
Won't even stand a devil's chance to win my soul

What we doin'? What we chasin'?
Why da bottom? Why da basement?
Why we got good shit, don't embrace it?
Why the feel for the need to replacement?

You're on a wrong way track from the good
I only painted a picture, anywhere we could be at
Like the heart in the best way should
You done gave it away, ya had it 'til ya took it back

But I keep walkin' on, keep open doors
Keep hopin' for, th-that the call is yours
Keep browsin' halls 'cause I don't wanna live in a broken home
Girl I'm beggin'

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out darlin'

I'm fightin' hard to hold my own
Just can't make it all alone
I'm holdin' on, can't fall back
I'm just a con 'bout to fade to black!

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out darlin'

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out darlin'

    General CommentMy guess is that this person was unfaithful to his woman and because he believed he had everything, he didn't appreciate her and went astray. Just like everything else, easy come and easy go, but without his realization later finding that she actually meant something to him. He was empty and now he's feeling remorse and begging her to have a heart and take him back or stop being cold to him the way he was to her...and I also believe he could be married to her with kids cause he mentioned not wanting a broken home.

    Ridin' high, when I was king
    Played it hard and fast, cause I had everything
    Walked away, wonderin' then
    But easy come and easy go
    And it would end

    An empty shell
    I used to be
    Shadow of my life
    Was hangin' over me

    A broken man
    But I don't know
    Won't even stand the devils chance
    To win my soul

    General CommentThis is being performed by Phil Phillips on American Idol at this very minute. It's such a great song, but the original beats any cover.
