Hey hey hey hey (ohh, I do I do I do I) Dooo Hey (ohh, I do I do I do I) Boy you got me Helpless Look into your eyes, and the sky's the limit I'm helpless Down for the count, and I'm drownin' in 'em I have never been the type to try and grab the spotlight We were at a revel with some rebels on a hot night Laughin' at my sister as she's dazzling the room Then you walked in and my heart went boom Tryin' to catch your eye from the side of the ballroom Everybody's dancin' and the band's top volume Grind to the rhythm as we wine and dine Grab my sister, and Whisper, yo, this one's mine My sister made her way across the room to you (ooh) And I got nervous, thinking what's she gonna do? (ooh) She grabbed you by the arm, I'm thinkin' I'm through (ooh) Then you look back at me and suddenly I'm (ooh) Helpless Oh, look at those eyes Look into your eyes And the sky's the limit I'm helpless Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em I'm helpless Look into your eyes And the sky's the limit I'm helpless Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em Where are you taking me? I'm about to change your life Then by all means, lead the way Elizabeth Schuyler It's a pleasure to meet you Schuyler? My sister Thank you for all your service If it takes fighting a war for us to meet, it will have been worth it I'll leave you to it One week later I'm writin' a letter nightly Now my life gets better, every letter that you write me Laughin' at my sister, 'cause she wants to form a harem I'm just sayin', if you really loved me, you would share him Ha Two weeks later In the living room stressin' My father's stone-faced While you're asking for his blessin' I'm dying inside, as You wine And dine And I'm tryin' not to cry 'Cause there's nothing that your mind can't do My father makes his way across the room To you (ooh) I panic for a second, thinking We're through (ooh) But then he shakes your hand and says Be true (ooh) And you turn back to me, smiling, and I'm Helpless Look into your eyes And the sky's the Limit I'm Helpless Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em I'm helpless Look into your eyes And the sky's the Limit I'm Helpless Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em Eliza, I don't have a dollar to my name An acre of land, a troop to command, a dollop of fame All I have's my honor, a tolerance for pain A couple of college credits and my top-notch brain Insane, your family brings out a different side of me Peggy confides in me, Angelica tried to take a bite of me No stress, my love for you is never in doubt We'll get a little place in Harlem and we'll figure it out I've been livin' without a family since I was a child My father left, my mother died, I grew up buckwild But I'll never forget my mother's face, that was real And long as I'm alive, Eliza, swear to God You'll never feel so Eliza I've never felt so My life is gon' be fine 'cause Eliza's in it I do I do I do I do Down for the count And I'm drownin' in 'em In New York, you can be a new man In New York, you can be a new man In New York, you can be a new man Helpless
