Joe Cocker

John Robert "Joe" Cocker OBE (born 20 May 1944) is an English rock and blues singer, who came to popularity in the 1960s, and is known for his gritty voice, his idiosyncratic arm movements while performing, and his cover versions of popular songs, particularly those of the Beatles. more »

Why should I worry when I know you're loving me
Why should I care when there's joy everywhere 
Why can't I see the beauty of the life

 Somebody I trusted, trusted  Somebody I knew quite well
 Somebody I loved 

But please don't put out the light 
Put out the light, turn the day into night 
Put out the light, put out light 
Turn the day into night, turn the day into night 
Hey, hey, hey, yeah

I got this good old melody 
I think it's makin' me blue only
Then I hear the symphony 
That's what I get and
That's what's been taken out, the best of me

Hey, hey, hey, yeah
Hey, hey, hey, yeah

Why should I hurry? I do the best I can
Do what I do and I hope you understand 
Why can't I see the beauty of the life?

 Somebody I trusted  Somebody I knew quite well
 Somebody I loved 

But please don't put out the light 
Put out the light, turn the day into night 
Turn the day into night, put out light 
Put out the light, turn the day into night 
Hey, hey, hey, yeah

 Please don't, somebody I trusted  Somebody I knew quite well
 Somebody I loved 

But please don't
? please don't put out the light 
Put out the light 
Hey, hey, hey, yeah

Put out the light, don't put out the light, yeah
Put out the light, don't put out the light, yeah
Put out the light, don't put out the light, yeah
