Jelly Roll, “Want a Favor” Lyrics:
I solely speak to God after I want a favor / And I solely pray after I ain’t acquired a prayer / So, who the hell am I, who the hell am I to count on a savior? Oh-oh-oh / If I solely speak to God after I want a favor / However God, I would like a favor
I do know Wonderful Grace / However I ain’t been livin’ them phrases / Swear I spend extra Sundays / Drunk off my ass than I’ve in church / Hardcover King James / Solely been savin’ mud, on the nightstand / And I do not know what to say / By the point I fold my palms
However God, I would like a favor / Amen, amen
Yeah, I owe you a couple of / And beggars cannot be choosers / However I am going to pay for all I’ve performed / Simply, please, do not let me lose her
Hangin’ in there, simply barely / Throwin’ up prayers, like Hail Marys / If You are still there, Lord, spare me
Oh my God, oh my God, Hail Mary / Hangin’ in there, simply barely / Throwin’ up prayers, like Hail Marys / If You are still there, Lord, spare me / Oh my God, oh my God, Hail Mary
