I admit that in the past I've been a nasty
They weren't kidding when they called me kinda strange
But you'll find that nowadays
I've mended all my ways
Repented, seen the light, and made a change

And I fortunately know a little secret
It's a talent that I always have possessed
And Dear lady, please don't laugh
I use it on behalf
Of the miserable, lonely, and depressed (pathetic! )

Poor unfortunate souls
In pain
In need
This one longing to be thinner
That one wants to get the girl
And do I help them?
Yes, indeed!

Those poor unfortunate souls
So sad
So true
They come flocking to me crying
"Will you help us, pretty please?"
And I help them!
Yes I do!

The men up there don't like a lot of blabber
They think a girl who gossips is a bore!
Yes on land it's much preferred for ladies not to say a word
And after all dear, what is idle patter for?

They're not all that impressed with conversation
True gentlemen avoid it when they can
Yet they dote and swoon and fawn
On ladies who withdrawn
It's she who holds her tongue who gets her man

Poor unfortunate souls
Go ahead!
Make your choice!
I'm a very busy person and I haven't got all day
It won't cost much
Just your voice!

Those poor unfortunate souls
So sad
So true
If you wanna cross the bridge, my sweet
You've got the pay the toll
Take a gulp
Take a breath
Go ahead
Sign the scroll
Nick and Kevin
Now I've got her, boys
The boss is on a roll
You poor unfortunate souls

In pain
In need
This one longing to be thinner
That one wants to get the girl
And do I help them?
Yes, indeed!

Those poor unfortunate souls
So sad
So true
They come flocking to me crying
"Will you help us, pretty please?"
And I help them!
Yes I do!

Those poor unfortunate souls

    I love this version of this song, better than the original! It's sounds better with a rock n' rollish theme. I love it! ☺
