lyrics

Ain’t got no gold (pa rum pa pum pum)
Got no cologne (pa rum pa pum pum)
Don’t even know (pa rum pa pum pum)
how to beat no drum
But I was told (pa rum pa pum pum)
that you accepted (pa rum pa pum pum)
even empty handed (pa rum pa pum pum)
broken-hearted ones

So I’ve come with my nothin’
And I give you everything
And I’m prayin’ maybe somethin’ will change
Though I don’t do no religion
I’m dyin’ how I’m livin’
And they say you have the power to save

I loved this world (pa rum pa pum pum)
so faithfully (pa rum pa pum pum)
But this ol’ world (pa rum pa pum pum)
did not love me
Took all my joy (pa rum pa pum pum)
and left me blue (pa rum pa pum pum)
But a wise man said (pa rum pa pum pum)
there’s hope in you

So I’ve come with my nothin’
And I give you everything
And I’m prayin’ maybe somethin’ will change
Though I don’t do no religion
I’m dyin’ how I’m livin’
And they say you have the power to save

All that I’ve heard (pa rum pa pum pum)
sounds so absurd (pa rum pa pum pum)
You came to earth (pa rum pa pum pum)
for a man like me
But if it’s true (pa rum pa pum pum)
I pray that you (pa rum pa pum pum)
Lord please remove (pa rum pa pum pum)
my unbelief

Here I am with my nothin’
And I give you everything
And I’m prayin’ maybe somethin’ will change
Though I don’t do no religion
I’m dyin’ how I’m livin’
And they say you have the power to save (pa rum pa pum pum)
Baby Jesus have you power to save (pa rum pa pum pum)
Can you take away my sin and my shame (pa rum pa pum pum)
Can you really make my heart again say (pa rum pa pum pum)
