  • Have mercy
    Have mercy baby
    Have mercy
    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 back is packed up under the bed
    And I cry

    Have mercy
    Have mercy baby
    Have mercy
    Have mercy on me

    I say, if you leave me baby
    Girl if you put me down
    Well I'm a goin' to the nearest river, child
    And jump from above to the ground
    Don't leave me

    Have mercy
    Have mercy baby
    Mercy yeah
    Have mercy
    Have mercy on me

    Well hey hey baby, hey hey now
    What you tryin' to do, huh?
    Hey hey baby, hey hey now
    Please don't say we're through

    I said if you stay, baby
    I tell you what I'm gonna do
    I'm gonna work to a job seven days a week
    And bring my money home to you

    Well I say mercy,
    mercy, mercy, mercy... Writer/s: Don Covay, Ronald Miller
