Staples, Mavis - Your Good Fortune Lyrics




Why did you spend your good fortune on me?
Why did you spend your good fortune on me?

Did you leave me to suffer
Just to shuffle and breathe
Did you pick through the letters
And just settle on me

Am I just a plaything
(I just a plaything)
For the wind like a leaf
(Wind like a leaf)
Or did you leave me exactly
(Leave me exactly)
Where I need to be
(I need to be)

Tell me why did you spend your good fortune on me?
Why did you spend your good fortune on me?

I can tell you of sorrow
(tell you of sorrow)
Of losing, of pain
(losing, of pain)
I can cry through the levee
(cry through the levee)
It would wash you away
(wash you away)

I could give you one reason
(give you a reason)
Two reasons or three
(reason or three)
I can tell you 'bout heartache
(tell you 'bout heartache)
No leanness and grieve
(No leanness have greed)

So why did you spend your good fortune on me?
Oh, why did you spend your good fortune on me?

I can tell you a story
Tell it simple and plain
Tell you life is a candle
It figures that I'm a flame

So if I give you one reason
(give you a reason)
For me to say what I'm sayin'
(say what I'm saying)
I'll say that you are the answer
(you are the answer)
To my question every day
(every day)

Saying why did you spend your good fortune on me?
Tell me why did you spend your good fortune on me?
Why did you spend your good fortune on me?
Oh, why did you spend your good fortune on me?
On me, on (why)
On me, (why) ooh (why)
