I don't wanna say it's Overused, but the phrasing "you got me down on my knees, begging you please....." has got to be one of the used lyrical turns in pop music. It's all over Blues, rock, country, R&B, you name it. Let's see how many times this lyrical 1 2 comes up. hopefully this thread won't suck too much.


Derrick and the Dominoes- Layla

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.


The Jayhawks-Stick In The Mud

I've been getting by
I've got no cross to bear
But I'm still getting there

You've got me down on my knees
Begging you please don't leave

Let me be nice to you
You're still my best friend
Who says that this is the end

Why do good things divide
Why did they all choose sides
Slow steady wins the race
Slow steady wins the race

You've got the sweetest eyes
You just couldn't be mean
See you down on Skyline Drive

You've got me down on my knees
Begging you please don't leave
You've got me down on my knees
Begging you please don't leave

Good idea.

Jesus & Mary Chain - Sometime Always

I got down on my knees
And then I begged you please
I always knew you'd take me back

Weezer-Don't Let Go

Any time that you want
I'll be here in your arms
Silently holding on To the girl with the charms
But if there comes a day
You should turn your heart away
I'll be down on my knees
Beggin' for that girl to stay

Candyman. Knockin Boots. You got me on the ground, down on my knees Like James Brown, singing, "Please, please."

No, it'll be stupid, and we're already doing something stupid.

Stars - One More Night

Take me like that, ruin it all
Then build it again by the light in the hall
He drops to his knees says please my love, please
I'll kill who you hate, take off that dress, you won't freeze

at least he didn't start a thread with songs that rhyme "girl" and "world". that would have been 50 pages long.
I fully support people doing drugs on the streets. I'm sick and tired of people being selfish by doing drugs in the privacy of their own homes. Do it on the streets where you can share with your friends and neighbors. It's the Christian thing to do.

Even Leonard Cohen has leaned on the knees/please rhyme:

Ah but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Oh I'd crawl to you baby
And I'd fall at your feet
And I'd howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I'd claw at your heart
And I'd tear at your sheet
I'd say please, please
I'm your man


Still waiting for Slackmo to delete this thread.

Run your fingers thru' my hair

Right or wrong, don't it turn you on
Can't you see we're wastin' time?
Do you wanna touch? - Yeah! Do you wanna touch? - Yeah!

One Minute Woman

One minute woman please
I'd go down on my knees
To say to you with a word so true
I love you

I fail to understand
Why you don't want my hand
I try to find what's on your mind
I wonder

Why don't you stop and see
Why you're not loving me
Would it hurt to say hello
Or don't you know

I fail to understand
Why you don't want my hand
I try to find what's on your mind
I wonder

Why don't you stop and see
Why you're not loving me
Would it hurt to say hello
Or don't you know

One minute woman please
I'd go down on my knees
To say to you with a word so true
I love you

Temptations--"Don't Let Him Take Your Love From Me"

Now, I'm begging you, baby, baby, down on my bended knees.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, please stay here with me.


At least Crowded House tried to change things up a bit in "It's Only Natural,"

I want you to know I feel completely at ease
Read me like a book that's fallen down
Between your knees, please
Let me have my way with you
