Tower of Power

Tower of Power (or TOP for short) is an American R&B-based horn section and band, originating in Oakland, California, that has been performing for over 44 years. They are best known for their funky soul sound highlighted by a powerful horn section and precisely syncopated bass-guitar lines. There have been several lead vocalists, the most famous being Lenny Williams, who fronted the band between early 1973 and late 1974, the period of their greatest commercial success. Their biggest hits include "You're Still A Young Man", "So Very Hard To Go","Soul With a Capital S", "Soul Vaccination", "What Is Hip?", and "Don't Change Horses (In the Middle of a Stream)." more »

Call me Mr. Pitiful, baby that's my name
They call me Mr. Pitiful, that's how I got my fame
But you see people just don't understand
What make a man feel so blue
They call me Mr. Pitiful 'cause I lost someone just like you

Call me Mr. Pitiful, this everybody knows
They call me Mr. Pitiful most everyplace I go
But you see nobody seems to understand
How can a man sing such a sad, sad song
When he lost, when he lost everything
When he lost everything he had

How can I explain to you
How somebody could be so very blue?
How can I tell you about my past
If things won't even last?

Mr. Pitiful that's my name
They call me Mr. Pitiful, that's how I got my fame
Some people won't understand
What makes a man feel so very blue
They call me Mr. Pitiful because I am in love with you

Can I explain to you?
I've lost everything I had
Everything is going wrong
Just trying to get back to you

I have to sing this sad, sad songs
I want you, I want you, I want you
Get back, I've got to have you
I want you, I want you, I want you
