The Lyrics

JUST NEED A REST

I'm working my socks off to bring in some dough,
The hours are long and they just seem to grow.
Do help me please?
As I'm here on bended knee.

I'm given nothing but promises but no help at all.
There are those in the business, love to see me fall.
Oh, I feel it's wrong,
But I know I must be strong.

I just need a rest,
Told that it's for the best.
And told by everyone,
Everyone who's in the net.
I fear for my health,
I'm told that I should take a break.
And if I don't,
Maybe I would end up in bed.

I believe that I can manage every night and every day.
But my age lets me down, it gets in my way.
And as long as I'm able I will
Give it all that I'm able to.

I just need a rest,
Told that it's for the best.
And told by everyone,
Everyone who's in the net.
I fear for my health,
I'm told that I should take a break.
And if I don't,
Maybe I would end up in bed.

Some people tell me that I'm working too much,
And others who say I am losing my touch.
I'm in two minds as to what I should do.
No wonder, I'm so blue.

I just need a rest,
Told that it's for the best.
And told by everyone,
Everyone who's in the net.
I fear for my health,
I'm told that I should take a break,
And if I don't,
Maybe I would end up in bed.
Just need a rest!

I agree. Tina Turner also did "Simply The Best" in the 80s.

Hi I'm RedPill new on here and i want to say this is great! I do not understand why the ones features are so mediocre. This is actually funny!

Hi RedPill, Welcome to the club! I get 13 "ones" from the same Trump supporter(s) for every one of my songs, if you care to have a look. They didn't like some of my earlier lyrics!
