Simple Prayer Lyrics - Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers

Lyrics

I′ve got a humble question
Respectfully suggested
For Jehovah, or Allah
My witness to bear
Final examination
Cross multiplication
Let me pass Algebra
That′s my simple prayer

God, I′ve got a problem
A moral conundrum
Proportion biblical
And importance rare
Internal revenue
My filing′s overdue
Please, please no audit
That′s my simple prayer
This is my humble
This is my simple
My simple prayer

I′ve got a load of payments
Pitiful bank statements
I′m sinking in debt
I′m no millionaire
Finances are tottery
Liquidity is watery
Let me hit the lottery
That′s my simple prayer

Lord, please hear my pleading
While my heart is beating
My hairline is receding
I′m losing my hair
Follicles are falling
That Rogaine bottle′s calling
Don′t let me be a baldy
That′s my simple prayer

This is my humble
This is my moral
This is my simple
That′s my simple prayer
Can you hear me,
Are you out there?
This is my simple prayer

Sweet Jesus, it′s so vital
We win the football title
We′ve reached the semi-finals
If we lose it, it′s not fair
Our glory, in your name
Will earn the town′s acclaim
Let us win the game
That′s my simple prayer

My husband doesn′t get me
He never wants to pet me
That sort of upset me
So I had an affair
Last stop on a postal route
Something to write home about
Please don′t let him find out
That′s my simple prayer

Can you hear me
Are you out there
This is my simple prayer
This is my simple prayer
This is my simple prayer
This is my simple prayer
