Lyrics

I AM THE BEGGAR
(Written & performed by hooyoosay)


I am the beggar.
Keep on begging for love ev'ry day.
I am the beggar.
Keep on begging for love ev'ry day.
When I was a kid my mom didn't love me,
doggin' me 'round most all the time.

I am the beggar.
Keep on begging for love ev'ry day.
I am the beggar.
Keep on begging for love ev'ry day.
When I was a teen I never got the girls,
but all other guys got plenty and more.

I go begging down the street,
hoping for a smile from just anyone I meet.
Now see me begging at the bus stop.
I even tried to find some used love in the thrift shop.

I am the beggar.
Keep on begging for love ev'ry day.
I am the beggar.
Keep on begging for love ev'ry day.
Now I'm a grown man and I never found me a good wife.
In solitude I've got to spend my life.

I go begging in the park.
But all that happens is, I get beaten up after dark.
And I go and beg in the disco.
But all I hear people say is: "Now go, man, go!"

I'm the beggar.
Oh, I'm the beggar.
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day.
A miserable, bastard beggar.
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day.
I am the beggar.
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day, ev'ry day.
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day, ev'ry day.
