Album: Here in the Real World (1990)
  • Excuse me, ma'am can you help me
    I need to place an ad with you today
    No ma'am tomorrow may be too late
    I'd like to have it started right away

    What's that, no this is personal
    I'm not buying or selling anything
    Yes ma'am, I know just what to say
    I wrote it down, this is how it should read

    Wanted one good hearted woman
    To forgive imperfection in the man that she loved
    Wanted just one chance to tell her
    How much he still loves her
    He can't be sorry enough

    What's that, no that's all I want to say
    I just hope these few lines will get to her
    Yes ma'am, she means everything
    I hope she comes back when she reads these words Writer/s: Charlie Craig, Alan Eugene Jackson
