Love have mercy, yeah, on my soul
How many kisses, y'all, have I stole?
From other girls they didn't belong to me
That's why the payback is just misery, yeah

Love have mercy, y'all
Love have mercy on me now

Love have mercy, y'all, on my heart
For this young girl is just tearing it apart
It's got me weak, oh, don't ever let me go
'Cause I couldn't stand to reap, what I've sown now

Love have mercy, y'all
Love have mercy on me, yeah

This feeling, Lord, is killing me
All the things I did wasn't right
And now I'm just sittin' like a duck
Sittin' here on that dynamite, yeah
Now, somebody help me, comin' lose y'all

Love have mercy, yeah, on this man
All the wrong I did now I understand
I broke a lot of hearts before I got to her
And now this suffering, just like they were, tell me 'bout it

Love have mercy, yeah
Love have mercy on poor me

Love have mercy, yeah, got to tell you about it
You got me sufferin', Lord, just like they were
Don't make me suffer, don't make me, love have mercy on me
Don't make me suffer, no no no no no no

Love have mercy, mercy, mercy
Love have mercy, mercy, mercy
Love have mercy on me, no don't do it to me

You got me doin' the things, I don't want to do, y'all, yeah
You got me sufferin', just like the girls were, now, now
Sorry 'bout that, sorry 'bout that, sorry 'bout that, baby
Sorry 'bout that, sorry 'bout that, sorry for what I did to you, baby
