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'

@Jay Royce did you drop out of school in first grade? No idea what you're saying.

stephen jones

you are not an old soul. you just have good taste and like good music.

I’m 13, I can understand u. But I’m a “singer” too so when I sing this song they don’t care...no, I don’t care

Brooke Evans

Me too!!!

Gary Grimm

opinion from, well, an old guy... this is music from my youth. it is still full of life. Your soul may simply be confident and sound. timeless, too.
