When I was just seventeen I ran away from home
To be with all the pretty people, to be on my own, yeah
Bright lights and trains and bedsit stains
And pavements paved with gold, gold
And I believed in everything that everybody told me

Have mercy, have mercy on me

I found myself in a lonely place with a suitcase full of dreams
And I soon grew up to realize what living in the doghouse means
But everyday I told myself good things would happen soon
'Cause I knew that I was going to be a legend in my living room, yea

Have mercy
(Come on, sister, sing)
Have mercy on me
Have mercy
(Come on, brother, sing)
Have mercy on me

Have mercy
(Come on, mother, sing)
Have mercy on me
Have mercy
(Come on, father, sing)
Have mercy on me

Welcome to this perfect world

Now, everyday on a dead end street is where I spend my time
The dust has been collecting on the corners of my mind
But I've shed my tears in bitter drops until the thorn trees bloomed
To take the spiky fruit to crown myself the Queen of Doom, yeah

Have mercy
(Come on, people, sing)
Have mercy on me
(Mercy got no children)

Have mercy
(Come on, people, sing)
Have mercy on me
(I need to hear you say)

Have mercy
(All the young girls say)
Have mercy on me
(Sing it for yourself, now)

Have mercy
(All your love, say)
Have mercy on me
