Me and my baby
We had a big fight
And we ended our romance the same night
In a angry mood
She walked out the door
And he said he saw her going to an Aretha Franklin show

Hey, Aretha, play one for me
One that will let her know I’m as miserable a man could be
Will you sing a song, that will touch her heart
And make her sorry that we are apart

I don’t know if taking requests is part of your show
If you do me this one favor I’ll be grateful to you forever more
Many romances have been saved through your sound
Your records have touched so many lovers, so many times

Miss Aretha, sing one for me
One that will let her know I’m as miserable a man can be
Will you sing a song, that will touch her heart
And make her sorry we are apart

Play the song I could never love in anyone loved like I love you
Respect since you been gone call me tonight
Baby baby baby
A Bridge Over Troubled Water too
And
I can’t see myself leaving you

Hey, Aretha, play one for me
One that will let her know I’m as miserable a man could be
Will you sing a song, that will stay with her heart
And make her sorry we are apart

Miss Aretha, sing one for me
One that will let her know I’m as miserable a man can be
