I have a question about the lyrics of "Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)" sung by ABBA.
I wonder about a sentence "Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away". http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/abba/gimmegimmegimmeamanaftermidnight.html
What does the "Won't" mean?
When I first saw this sentence, I thought it was a mistake for "Want".
If the "Won't" is correct, what is the meaning and the nuance of the sentence?
If the "Won't" is incorrect, what is the true word?
