Music Monday – Beggin’ by Måneskin

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! For this week’s song, I have chosen Beggin’ by Måneskin.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


Beggin’ by Måneskin

Beggin’ features on Måneskin’s 2007 album, Chosen. Måneskin have sky rocketed to fame after winning the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest! I’m not usually a Eurovision fan, but this band are fantastic.

Beggin’ was originally released in 1967 by The Four Seasons. A cover of the song was then released in 2007 by Madcon, which is when I first heard the song, and absolutely loved it. Obviously Måneskin’s cover has become massive through social media and is probably the most recognised, but it seems that this song has gone through 3 generations, and been amazing in all of them.


Lyrics:

Put your loving hand out, baby
‘Cause I’m beggin’

I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, baby
I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, darlin’

Riding high when I was king
I played it hard and fast, ’cause I had everything
I walked away, you won me then
But easy come and easy go and it would end

So, anytime I bleed, you let me go
Yah, anytime I feed, you get me know
Anytime I seek, you let me know
But I planted that seed, just let me go
I’m on my knees when I’m beggin’
‘Cause I don’t wanna lose you
Hey, yeah, ra-ta-ta-ta!

‘Cause I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
Uh, put your loving hand out, baby
I’m beggin’, beggin’ you, ah
And put your loving hand out, darlin’

I need you to understand
Tried so hard to be your man
The kind of man you want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again

An empty shell, I used to be
The shadow of my life was hangin’ over me
A broken man that I don’t know
Won’t even stand the devil’s dance to win my soul

What we doin’? What we chasin’?
Why the bottom? Why the basement?
Why we got good shit, don’t embrace it?
Why the feel for the need to replace me?
You’re the wrong way track from the good
I want to paint a picture tellin’ where we could be at
Like a heart in the best way should
You can give it away, you had it and you took the pay
But I keep walkin’ on, keep openin’ doors
Keep hopin’ for, now the door is yours
Keep also home
‘Cause I don’t want to live in a broken home, girl, I’m beggin’

Mmm, yeah-yeah, yeah, I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, baby
I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, darlin’

I’m fighting hard to hold my own
Just can’t make it all alone
I’m holding on, I can’t fall back
I’m just a calm, ’bout to fade to black

I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
Put your loving hand out, baby
I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, darlin’
I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, baby
I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, darlin’

I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out, baby
I’m beggin’, beggin’ you
So put your loving hand out
