I pulled into Nazareth, I was feelin' about a half past dead;
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a girl might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No” was all he said.

[Chorus:]
Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fanny, And put the weight on me

I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide;
When I saw Carmen and the Devil walkin' side by side.
I said, "Hey, Carmen, come on, let's go downtown."
She said, "I gotta go, but my friend can stick around."

Take a load off Fanny, take a load for free;
Take a load off Fanny, And (and) (and)…

Go down, Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just like ol' Luke waitin', waitin’ on the Judgement Day.
"Well, Luke, my friend, what about Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, stay an' keep some company."

[Chorus]

Catch me a cannon ball, now take me on down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I believe that it's about time.
(You said it girl)
To in touch with Fanny, you know she's the one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone.

[Chorus]
