See, I was on the east coast
...of the things I have (?)
I saw a woman and a man
Become a husband and a wife
Under a beautiful tree
Bird flew down and landed on my head
I felt best and special, but that bird don't fly off with a feather

MERCY! [x8]

I'm able to see that feather again
Well, I need a change of scenery so I headed back west
I put holes in my shoes, I had dirt on my clothes,
I looked like I am robbin' the bank machine
Things started lookin' up, when I made it to Rivière-du-Loup.
One of the pom-pom girls from The Alouettes offered to drive me home...

MERCY! [x8]
M-E-R-C-Y [x4]
MERCY! (Mercy...) [x4]

Ooo, I really needed that drive.
When Mary Lou dropped me off,
I was feeling bent out of shape.
She had reminded me
That almost anything can happen.
'Cause if I did not choose this life,
Then it must've chose me.
I don't know which is worse.
I guess we're just gonna have to wait and see...

    General CommentFirst verse 2nd line: telling me the ways of the things I have.

    Second verse 6th line: One of the pom-pom girls from the Alouettes offered to drive me home.

    The Alouettes are Montreals CFL team.

    This song is the bestest. It has a great chug- along momentum, very good for road tripping.
