Well, my baby left me about a week ago
Said she found herself a brand new man
And the boss said son I'll have to let you go
And I've had about all I can stand.

That's why I'm roamin' the town just a paintin' it 'round
I said they get the best of me
So just in case that you should see me ace
Kindly lay a little light on me.

Well, I said lay a little light on me
Lay a little light on me
Don't wanna hear no moanin', right banana growin'
I've heard enough of that can't you see.

Lay a little light on me
Lay a little light on me.
Tell me all the good news, I don't wanna hear the bad news
Lay a little light on me.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, if everything that I done lately ain't worth a dime
No nothing seems to work out right
Like a bad idea that went all wrong
It sure been an uphill fight.

But the life they say goes on day by day
And there's no use to sit here a cryin'
'Cause I can change the tide on the oceans wide
This old bad luck's gotta change sometime.

Yeah, lay a little light on me
Lay a little light on me.
Tell me all the good news, I don't wanna hear the bad news
Lay a little light on me.

Yeah, lay a little light on me...
