"Charity Case" as written by and Thomas Decarlo/burton Callaway....
(Oh ah)
Gi' gi' give it away now
Gi' gi' give it away now
Give it away now
Give it away now, I, I, I, I don't know what matters to you at this moment
But that's all that matters to me
How are ya?

How are you?

Knock on wood
Well I'm not doing so good

I thought you probably couldn't tell, although your worth it, I'm still not well

And I don't understand how I'm so understanding
I guess that that's all I can be
How are ya

How are you?

I think I can help
But I can't help myself

Should I be happy if you need my help, I usually just keep to myself.

Oh can't ya see
Oh can't ya see
If I help somebody baby there's mercy for me
Ah charity (And you, for you, one for you and you and you)

Don't want to bother you baby but I'm bleeding to
Are you needing me like I'm needing you
Even my shadow leaves me all alone at night
Guess I need to start to take my own advice
Lalalala lalala la
Lalalala lalala la

Oh can't ya see
Oh can't ya see
Somebody's a liar who ever said that freedom was free
Ah charity

(Oh ah)
Gi' gi' give it away now
Gi' gi' give it away now
Give it away now
Give it away now

Oh oh
Alright
Yeah, I want to be your lady
Charity, you betta' give to somebody
