Call me Mr. Pitiful Baby, that's my name now, oh Call me Mr. Pitiful, that's how I got my fame But people just don't understand, now What makes a man feel so blue Ooh, they call me Mr Pitiful 'cause I lost someone just like you, yeah
They call me Mr. Pitiful This, everybody know now They call me Mr. Pitiful most every place I go But nobody seems to understand now How can a man sing such a sad song, now Ooh, when he lost everything, when he lost everything that he had
How can I explain to you When somebody had been so very blue? How can I tell you about my past If all things won't end?
Mr Pitiful That's my name now They call me Mr. Pitiful, that's how I got my fame But nobody seems to understand now Ooh, what make a man feel so blue They call me Mr. Pitiful 'cause I'm in love with you
Can I explain to you? Everything is going wrong I've lost everything I had And I have to sing these sad songs to get back to her And I want you And I want you And I want you And I want you And I want to tell you everything that, everything that's going through my mind Sing, and I want to sing And I want to sing this song with you And I'm gonna sing this song to everybody 'Cause I want them to understand what I talkin' about I want you to understand what I'm sayin'
