MERCY MERCY
(Written by Don Covay, Ronald Miller;
performed by hooyoosay)

Have mercy, have mercy, baby.
Have mercy, have mercy on me.

Well, I went to see the gypsy to have my fortune read.
She said: "Man, your baby's gonna leave you,
her bags are packed up under the bed".
That's right!

Have mercy, have mercy, baby.
Have mercy, have mercy on me.

I said: "If you leave me, baby, girl, if you're puttin' me down,
I'm gonna make it to the nearest river, child,
and jump overboard and drown!"
That's right!

Have mercy, have mercy, baby.
Have mercy, have mercy on me.

I said
Hey, hey, baby, hey, hey now, what cha try'n' to do.
Hey, hey, baby, hey, hey now, please don't say we're through!

Have mercy, have mercy, baby.
Have mercy, have mercy on me.

But if you stay, baby, I'll tell you what I'm gonna do.
I'm gonna work two jobs, seven days a week,
and bring my money home to you.
That's right!

Have mercy, have mercy, baby.
Have mercy, have mercy on me.

Have mercy, have mercy, baby.
Have mercy, have mercy on me.
