Lyrics

Oh pretty darling, you have nothing to fear
For I come, to you, with an open ear
See I, give you my pardons, in hopes I too may find
Someone to help me leave the past behind

Oh I said, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Ask you do I dare
To send me somebody to hold in the winter's air
I said Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Lordy up above, won't ya, send me somebody to love

Sweet baby child, I come from above
To give, you the blessings from the holy dove
See I couldn't help but notice
That you're, lonely tonight
Let me, make you feel alright

Oh I said, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Ask you do I dare
To send me somebody to hold in the winter's air
I said Lordy, Lordy, Lordy
Lordy up above, won't ya, send me somebody to love
