"Somebody Have Mercy" as written by and Sam Cooke....
Somebody have mercy
And tell me what is wrong with me
Somebody have mercy
And tell me what is wrong with me
Sometimes I don't know how I stand
The things this woman do to me

Let me tell you
When I think about how she do me,
The tears fall down like rain, like rain
When I think about how she do me,
The tears fall down like rain, like rain
When I think I've got her chained down,
She starts actin' up again
Oh let me tell you
I'm goin' down to the bus station
With a suitcase in my hand, yes I am
I'm goin' down to the bus station
With a suitcase in my hand, yes I am
I'm gonna grab me an armful of greyhound
And ride just as close I can
Do that thing for me now

Let me tell you one more time
Somebody have mercy I wonder what is wrong with me,
Lord have mercy
Somebody have mercy I wonder what is wrong with me, yeah
Sometimes I don't know
How I stand the things this woman do to me
Do that one more time, my fellas

I'm standin' here wonderin', baby,
With a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes I am
Standin', wonderin', baby,
With a matchbox hole in my clothes, yes I am
Oh I got a long way to get there
And I got-a some time to go
