"Lord what you're doing to me"

"I take home my hard earned pay all on my own"

What are the backing vocals saying during these lines? It's been bugging me for ages!

"Goes home.... goes home on his own" I always thought it was for the second line!

Isn't it just a "Yeahy yeah!" for the first one?

Shit, I thought this was going to be easy, but I can't figure it out either. My best guess for the first one is "yeah, yeah" and for the second line "gotta try, gotta try".

Yeah.

I used to think it was "comes home", but I do believe you have them both correct.

"And cry, yeah yeah"

"Goes home

Goes home on his own

Down, knees, praise the lord"

Of course, the Karaoke version...! I've got that box... I can't believe I didn't think of that. It's clear as day on that version.

Thanks everyone for responding.
