Oh Lord, it's you

It pays, it pays
Every man, every woman
Every boy, every girl
Been this way down

To do good
I wish you try to do good
I wish you

In the morning you leave your home
And now it's time to go back home
Is what I heard early this morning
Without even getting a warning

It pays, it pays
Every man, every woman
Every boy, every girl
Been this way down

To do good
I wish you try to do good
I wish you

In the morning you leave your home
And now it's time to go back home
Is what I heard early this morning
Without even getting a warning

It pays, it pays
Every man, every woman
Every boy, every girl
Been this way down

To do good
I wish you try to do good
I wish you
