Split Enz – Breakin' My Back lyrics

Come my girl, you could cure almost anything
Take this man, use your power give him energy
Pick me up, stop me feeling sorry for myself
There are times, when almost everybody needs some help

Cause I've been breakin' my back
With the weight of it all, and
And I've been breakin' my back

If I am strong, why do I falter?
Scratch my back and tickle my toes
Sing the song that we all know
Watch my mind become a desert where nothing grows

And I've been breakin' my back
With the weight of it all
Yes, I've been breakin' my back
But I aint' giving it up
I ain't letting it go
But it's been breakin' my back

Stay with me
A fool aspires
To raise himself
Out of the mire

I've been breakin' my back
And I been breakin' up too
Yes I'm a pain in the neck
But I can only improve

And I been breaking my back...

And I been breaking my back
Baby, baby, baby please help me(?)
Take me in your arms
Take me out a myself
