Please, please, please, let me get what I want

Good times for a change
See, the luck I’ve had
can make a good man turn bad *

So please, please, please,
let me, let me, let me
let me get* what I want this time

Haven’t had a dream in a long time
see, the life I’ve had
can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
let me get what I want
Lord knows it would be the first time

 

* Let me get what I want
_ Structure = let + someone/something + infinitive without ‘to’ (= bare infinitive)
_ Common mistake = ++ Let me to do that ++
=> NO NO NO!!! => Let me do that. NO ‘TO’!

Other songs with let + someone/something + bare infinitive:
_ Xavier Rudd – let me be
_ The Beatles – let it be
