Inspired by Hank Locklin's "Please Help Me, I'm Fallen", a country hit of some regard.
This is a 'last set' re-lyric of the song and there is a slightly "rougher" version for party bands.

I cannot sing. I hear music correctly, but I can't get it out correctly. So, I'm not 'tone deaf', but 'tone inaudible' instead. Flat, I think. One night while celebrating my 65th birthday (39Z) at a local bar. I was certainly tipsy, but did not have to drive. My better half encouraged me to do the Karaoke thing. It was a country western bar my friends had selected, so I pick this Hank Locklin song. It was short and twangy and I was loose enough to think I could pull it off to the satisfaction of a drunken crowd.
The emcee said he had the song. I threw down a quick shot of schnapps and grabbed the microphone.  The music started, but there no words on the screen. I turned and asked, "What do I do?"  Calm... he had seen this before... he said, "Wing it or walk, old man."  Made me mad, so I decided to wing it.  He restarted the music. My wife has often said I was quick with a rhyme....and so it was.  I could not remember much but the first line of the actual song, so this re-lyric is what the alcohol supplied my rhyming talent.  Luckily, some friends recorded the song on their phones or whatever. By the way, the 40 -50 women in the room, married and single, were hootin' and hollerin' at the "satisfy you" part.  I won hands down.   Ain't it great to be alive?
Please help me, I've fallen In Lust with You. You're just so damn sexy, That's why I'm hittin' on you. You don't have to love me, Some good sex will do. Please help me, I've fallen In Lust with You. Yes, you turned me on When I saw you walk in... The face of an Angel, A body just made for Sin. Now, I may be real horny, But one thing is true: What would satisfy me, Girl Would be to satisfy You. So please help me, I've fallen In Lust with You; And I hope that you're fallin' In Lust with me too; But if not, then please fake it, Please don't leave me "blue"... Please help me, I've fallen In Lust with You.
