Lyrics
Philomena
Liz Miller-ASCAP

I need a saint that gets things done
I need a holy hired gun
I need a saint that cuts in front of the line
I heard your reputation's such
Nobody ever asked too much
I hate to bug you but I've run out of time

Philomena won't you carry my prayer
Philomena- I know you'll get it there
I tried to do this on my own
I guess I'm just no good alone
Philomena carry my prayer

I hung your picture on my wall
I folded my hands and knealt on salt
There isn't anything at all I won't do
I work my ass off and play the game
But I can't seem to break these chains
My desperate hour has me calling on you

Philomena won't you carry my prayer
Philomena- I know you'll get it there
I tried to do this on my own
I guess I'm just no good alone
Philomena carry my prayer

I don't know how you do those things you do
Your mystery is the miracle of you

Philomena won't you carry my prayer
Philomena- I know you'll get it there
I'm on my knees Philomena
Oh please, Philomena
Don't Tease me Philomena with your sweet stare

Philomena, carry my prayer
