It's two in the moring, baby's in bed
Where are you? I can't rest my head
It's three in the morning, cat scratching at the door
Full moon rising, I walk the floor
Four in the morning, no headlights on the street
Ain't no one up, but I can't sleep
Five in the morning, birds are waking up
Are you in trouble or are you getting f-----?

Please, have a little mercy on me

Why'd you ever bother birthing a baby by me
If you didn't want me why didn't you let me be
I worked for you like a slave in the corn
Hard-working fool, now you're up and gone

But please, have a little mercy on me

Baby's up and you're nowhere around
Maybe you've a raped by the river, cut-throat a drowned
Maybe you've been shot in the head
Maybe somebody poisoned you and took you to their bed

But please, have a little mercy on me
