"Everybody's Crying Mercy" as written by and Mose Allison....
I can't believe the things I'm seeing
I wonder 'bout some things I've heard

Everybody's Crying Mercy
When they don't know the meaning of the word

A bad enough situation
It's sure enough getting worse

Everybody's Crying Justice
Just as long as it's business first

Toe to toe
Touch and go
Give a cheer
Get your souvenir

People running 'round in circles
Don't know what they're headed for

Everybody's Crying Peace on Earth
Just as soon as we win this war

Straight ahead
Knock 'em dead
Pack your kit
Choose your hypocrite

Well you don't have to go to off-Broadway
To see something plain absurd

Everybody's Crying Mercy
When they don't know the meaning of the word

Nobody knows the meaning of the word
