Pulled into Nazareth, was feeling 'bout half past dead
Just need a place where I can lay my head
Hey mister can you tell me where a girl might find a bed?
He just grinned, shook my hand, 'No' was all he said

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me
Right on me

I picked up my bag, I went lookin' for a place to hide
When I saw carmen and the devil walkin' side by side
I said, "Hey, carmen, come on, let's go downtown"
She said, "I gotto go but my friend can stick around"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And put the load right on me
No right on me

Crazy Chester followed me and he caught me in the fog
He said, "I will fix your rack, if you'll take Jack, my dog"
I said, "Wait a minute, Chester, you know I'm a peaceful man"
He said, "That's okay, won't you feed him when you can, yeah?"

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me
Put the load right on me
Right on me, right on me

Go down Miss Moses, there's nothin' you can say
It's just ol' Luke and Luke's waitin' for the judgement day
Well Luke my friend, "What about young Anna Lee?"
He said, "Do me a favor, won't you stay an' keep Anna Lee company?'

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on

Take a load off Fanny
Take a load for free
Take a load off Fanny
And you put the load right on me
Put the load right on me
Yeah, put the load right on me
Com'n and put the load right on me

Catch the cannon ball now, now take me down the line
My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time
To get back to Miss Fanny, you know she's the only one
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
Who sent me here with her regards for everyone
