I've Gotta Get a Message to You Songtext

The preacher talked to me and he smiled
Said, "Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile.
Now for once in your life you're alone
but you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone."

I've just got to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.


I told him I'm in no hurry
but if I broke her heart, won't you tell her I'm sorry.
And for once in my life I'm alone
and I've got to let her know just in time before I go.

I've just go to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.

Well I laughed but that didn't hurt
and it's only her love that keeps me wearing this dirt.
Now I'm crying but deep down inside
well I did it to him, now it's my turn to die.
I've just got to get a message to you, hold on, hold on.
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on, hold on.
I've just got to get a message to her, hold on, hold on
One more hour and my life will be through, hold on...

Songtext kommentieren

The song is about a man who, awaiting his execution, begs the prison chaplain to pass a final message on to his wife. Robin Gibb, who wrote the lyrics, said that the man's crime was the murder of his wife's lover, though the lyrics do not explicitly allude to the identity of the victim.

Hammergeiler Song von Robin Gibb,er hat eine
so schöne Stimme,einfach wundervoll.
Ich könnte ihm tagelang zuhören,immer wieder.
Er ist einmalig.Schade,daß ich ihn nie persön-
lich kennenlernen durfte.Er war schon ein
WELTSTAR.....aber ohne Allüren!!!!!
