The Four Seasons – “Beggin'”

Beggin’” is a song by the American band The Four Seasons also known as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. It was released in February 1967. This song was composed by Bob Gaudio and Peggy Farina.

The second single from the Four Seasons’ New Gold Hits album in 1967, “Beggin’” marked Gaudio’s “return” as the Seasons’ songwriter, with a combination of Valli’s impassioned soul singing and the band’s more contemporary instrumentation. It reached the #16 position on the Hot 100 charts, continuing the group’s string of Billboard Top 20 hits.

Lyrics:

Put your lovin’ hand out, baby
I’m beggin’
Beggin’, put your lovin’ hand out, baby
Beggin’ you, put your lovin’ hand out, baby
Ridin’ high when I was king
Played it hard and fast cause I had everything
Walked away, wonderin’ then
But easy come and easy go and it would endI’m beggin’ you, won’t you give your hand out, baby
Beggin’, put your lovin’ hand out, babyI need you to understand
That I tried so hard to be a man
The kind of man you’d want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again

An empty shell I used to be
Shadow of my life is hangin’ over me
Broken man that I don’t know
Will leave it standing, devil’s dancing with my soul

Beggin’ you, won’t you give your hand out, baby
Beggin’ you, put your lovin’ hand out, baby

I’m fightin’ hard to hold my own
No, I just can’t make it all alone
I’m holdin’ on, I can’t fall back
Now that big brass ring is a shade of black

I’m beggin’ you, give your hand out, baby
Beggin’, won’t you put your lovin’ hand out, baby
