Mr. Pitiful
Otis Redding Lyrics


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'

King of Soul, the one and only Otis Redding, his voice is out of this world. Miss him and still enjoying his music in 2019. Often imitated, but, never, never, never should be replicated. There is only one King of Soul.

I’m 14 and my friends say I have an old soul cause I always play old music 😭 I’m glad I have an old soul

Roy Preston

Relax. This is very good music.

Keith The hawk

I’d say you were cool and I’d hang with you

It's been said by many musicians the best songs have all been written. And that most modern music is simply variations of the classics

You just enjoy good music! You can be young or old, age doesn't discriminate musical talent across genres...This is good music!

I still remember, as a teenager first hearing Dock Of The Bay, walking into my local music store (when there still was such a thing) and asking for an Otis Redding compilation. The store owner was so shocked. It was the 80s after all. Anyway, loved it! This song, I Can't Turn You Loose and Cigarettes & Coffee were always my favourites.

Speechless! My God that voice was Heaven sent 😥 😥 😢
