"Mercy Mercy" as written by and Donald/miller Covay....
Have mercy
Have mercy, baby
Mmm, have mercy, yeah
Have mercy on me
Well, I went to see a gypsy
And had my fortune read
She said, Don
Your baby's gonna leave you
Her bag is packed up
Under the bed
I cried
Have mercy
Have mercy, baby, yeah
Have mercy, yeah
Have mercy on me
I said, if you leave me, baby
Girl, if you're putting me down
Well, I'm going to
The nearest river, child
And jump overboard and drown
Have mercy
Have mercy, baby
Mercy, yeah, have mercy
Yeah have mercy
Have mercy on me
Well now, hey, hey, baby
Hey, hey now
What you trying to do, huh
Hey, hey, baby
Hey, hey now
Please don't say we're through
I said if you stay here, 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
Well, I said mercy
Mercy, mercy, mercy
Mercy, mercy
