​I Ain't No Miracle Worker

This song is by The Brogues and appears on the compilation Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968 (1972).

Don't ask me to move a mountain
Don't ask me to swim your sea
Don't think that I am a tower of strength
Don't lean too much on me

When looking to the future
Don't build your dreams too high
I beg you to remember
I'm just an ordinary guy

I ain't no miracle worker
I do the best that I can
I ain't no miracle worker
Oh Lord, I ain't no miracle man

And I don't have a fortune
You know I sweat for each dime I make
But I'm always living now just looking
To that get love you bring

Every day I keep on trying
To do my best for you
And every trying just ain't enough baby
Well tell me what would you have me do

I ain't no miracle worker
I do the best that I can
I ain't no miracle worker
Oh Lord, I ain't no miracle man

Ask me to be tender
Ask me to be truth
Ask me for all the love I have
And girl, I'll give it all to you

But girl, I just can't offer
No storybook romance
Girl, that's what you're looking for, baby
I tell you, we just don't have a chance

I ain't no miracle worker
I do the best that I can
I ain't no miracle worker
Oh Lord, I'm not a miracle man
