Larry got a job as a soda jerk
Worked five days bought a 55 Merc
He raised it in the front, he lowered in the back
Now, all the girls just call him Mercury Jack

He's the Merc man, how do you do?
Merc man, that's who
Merc man, he likes to cruise around
Merc man, he's got his coolness down

Saturday night, Larry's in the valley dancin'
He looks across the room and spots
Some black stretch pants and she got legs
That go clear up to the rafters

A pair of nocturnal fantasy hips
He knew right away what he was after
When she looked his way
And moistened her lips

He said, "I'm the Merc man, how do you do?"
Merc man, that's who
Merc man, he likes to cruise around
Merc man, he's got his coolness down

Larry's pulse quickened as she
Crossed the floor, he backed up slowly
And showed her to the door
She yes with her X-ray eyes

She walked up to him and he just sighed
"I'm the Merc man, how do you do?"
Merc man, that's who
Merc man, he likes to cruise around
Merc man, he's got his coolness down
