Simple Prayer

This song is by Bruce Hornsby and appears on the album Levitate (2009).

I've got a humble question, respectfully suggested
For Jehovah or Allah, my witness to bear
Final examination, cross multiplication
Let me pass algebra that's my simple prayer

God, I've got a problem, a moral conundrum
Proportion biblical and importance rare
Internal revenue, my filing's overdue
Please, please no audit that's my simple prayer

This is, is, is my humble
This is, is, is my simple
This is, is, is, is, is, is, is
My simple prayer

I've got a load of payments, pitiful bank statements
I'm sinking in debt, I'm no, I'm no millionaire
Finances are tottery, liquidity is watery
Let me hit the lottery that's my, that's my simple prayer

Lord, please hear my pleading while my heart is beating
My hairline is receding, losing my hair
Follicles are falling, that Rogaine bottle's calling
Don't let me be a baldy that's my simple prayer

This is, this is my moral
This is, this is my humble
This is, this is my simple
That's my simple prayer

Can you hear me? Are you out there?
Yes, this is my simple prayer
Can you hear me? Are you out there?
This is my simple prayer

Sweet Jesus, it's so vital we win the football title
We've reached the semi-finals, if we lose it it's not fair
Our glory in Your name will earn the town's acclaim
Let us win the game that's my simple prayer

My husband don't get me, he never wants to pet me
That sort of upset me so I had an affair
Last stop on a postal route, something to write home about
Please don't let him find out that's my simple prayer

Can you hear me? Are you out there?
This is my simple, simple, simple prayer
Can you hear me? Are you out there?
This, this is my simple, simple prayer

This is, this is, that's my simple prayer
This is my simple prayer
