Today I heard this song on an oldies station, and was reminded of how I’ve never been able to figure out what this song’s about. It seems to have some sort of Old Testament biblical connection, but in other places it sounds like Desmond is singing in a foreign language. Can someone give me a little help with the lyrics without violating Board policy?
All I get is:
- Wake up in the morning, slaving for <???>
So that every mouth can be fed,
At first I thought it was “slaving for breakfast”, but when I listen now it sounds more like “slaving for beksah” whatever that is.
Anybody got a clue about this?
