No Real Pleasure

A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O'Connor: "Shut up, Bobby Lee" The Misfit said. "It's no real pleasure in life."


Listen here:


The lord made a pretty man when he made me The lord made a pretty man when he made me He gave me eyes like the silver clouds And a mug to make any mother proud And any father say son you’re our greatest treasure But I gotta tell you daddy that there ain’t no real pleasure

The lord made a pretty man oh yes he did The lord made a pretty man when he made this kid He gave me soul like the ocean deep And a voice to make any woman weep And a kiss by which all others must be measured But I gotta tell you baby that there ain’t no real pleasure

I’m crawling out on my hands and knees I’m crawling out baby can you help me please

He gave me soul like the ocean deep And a voice to make any woman weep And a kiss by which all others must be measured But I gotta tell you baby that there ain’t no real pleasure
