Please Send Me Someone To Love

Lyrics: Percy Mayfield
Music: Percy Mayfield

Played in 1976 by Jerry in the JGB with James Booker.

Heaven please send to all mankind
Understanding and peace of mind
But if it's not asking too much
Please send me someone to love

Show the world how to get along
And peace will enter when hate is gone
But if it is not asking too much
Lord won't you please send me, send me someone to love

I lay awake at night and find the world full of trouble
And you know my answer is always the same
Unless man bring an end to this [destructible] sin
Hate is gonna put the world in a flame, what a shame now

Just because I am in misery
Well I don't beg for no sympathy
Well if it's not asking too much
Please send me someone to love

I lay awake at night and find the world full of trouble
And you know my answer is always the same
Unless man bring an end to this [destructible] sin
We're all gonna put the world in a flame, what a shame

Just because I am in misery
You know I don't beg for no sympathy
If it is not asking too much
Please send me someone to love

Well someone to love
Someone to love
Please send me someone
I want someone
Well I want someone
Someone to love, just someone to love
Do you know on a Monday
I want someone, I want someone to love
And on Tuesday, I want someone to love
Well on a Wednesday, well on a Wednesday
I want someone, I want someone now
Well on a Thursday and a Friday and Saturday and Sunday
You know I need spomeone to love
I need someone to walk with me
And I want someone to talk with me
I want someone to hold my hand
And make me understand
That I mean a love
I m being loved
By someone, by someone
I'm well aware
And you know I'm being loved
I'm being loved by someone, someone
Someone, someone
