Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, do you believe in mercy?

Penance, I got a penance
but I got no god
So I won't get no mercy
Money, just makes ya hungry
America, there's your god.

Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy

I'm a lover, like no other, know how to get down on my knees, beggin', til the morning sings
Even if my (?) job ships, saunter up with swollen lip, bleary eyed and talking shit, easily we could loose our grip

So Mercy, mercy, tell the whole world your wide story,
Mercy, mercy, here's another island worry
Mercy, mercy, lord lord have mercy
Mercy, mercy, lord lord have mercy

Mercy, have mercy on me
(Mercy, mercy, lord, lord, have mercy)
America, you won't get no mercy
(Mercy, mercy, lord, lord, have mercy)
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, do you believe in mercy?
Mercy, have mercy on me
America, you won't get no mercy
