Oh
Put your loving hand out, baby
I'm beggin'

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, darling

Riding 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

So why every time I lead you let me go?
Every time I reach, you get me low
Every time I seek, you let me know
But I planted that seed, just let me grow
I'm on my knees while I'm (beggin')
'Cause I don't want to lose (you)
I got my arms all spread
I hope that my heart gets fed
Matter of fact, girl, I'm beggin' (beggin', beggin')

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, darling

I need you (yeah) to understand (yeah, oh)
Tried so hard to be your man (hey)
The kind of man you want in the end (oh, oh)
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 that I don't know
Won't even stand the devil's chance to win my soul

What we doing? What we chasing?
Why the bottom? Why the basement?
Why we got good shit, don't embrace it?
Why the feel for the need to replace me?
You're on a runway track from the good
I want to paint in a picture telling where we could be at
Like the heart ain't attached where it should
You done give it away, I had it 'til you took it back
But I keep walking on, keep opening doors
Keep hoping for that the call is yours
Keep hoes on hold
'Cause I don't want to live in a broken home
Girl I'm beggin' (beggin', beggin')

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, darling

I'm fighting hard (yeah)
To hold my own (to hold my own)
Just can't make it
All alone (all alone)

I'm holding on (yeah)
Can't fall back (no, I'm fallin')
I'm just a con (yeah)
'Bout to fade to black

And I can't come home
You call and I can't come home
You call you can't come home
You call and I can't come home
Can't come home, can't come home
Can't come home (can't come home)

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, darling

Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, baby
Beggin', beggin' you
Put your loving hand out, darling

    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.

    General CommentI definitely think this song is a lover's lament about how he did the love of his life dirty, and now he is "Beggin'" her to come back to him. Especially if you consider the original by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons.
