My mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde
Merc-merc-mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde

Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercury, merc-merc-mercury's in
Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde

This is not the time, the time to start a new love
This is not the time, the time to sign a lease
Try not to worry about what's forgotten
Try not to worry about what's been missed

Scars on my shins and scars on my knuckles
Today I woke up in a basketball court
John Joes in Sydney and he ain't returning
I'm sitting in Soho trying to stay drunk

In any bar in the world
From Silver lake to Williamsburg
You could pick another stranger
And fall in love

Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde
Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde

This is not the time, the tie to start a new love
This is not the time, the time to sign a lease
Try not to worry about what's forgotten
Try not to worry about what's been missed

Bleeding gums and veins protruding
Youre starting to hate all of your clothes
The Mayor's in LA and she ain't returning
I'm sleeping with people I dont even like

In any part of the world
From Silver Lake to Williamsburg
You can pick another stranger
And fall in love

Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde
Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde

Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde
Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde

When I saw you last night I wanted to say
Run away with me, away from the cynics
That this could be the start of something truly real
But all that I could say was 'Hey'
Was 'Hey', was 'Hey', was 'Hey'

Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde
Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde

Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde
Mercury, mercu-mercury's in
Mercurys in retrograde
Mercurys in retrograde

My mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde
Merc-merc-mercury's in retrograde
My mercury's in retrograde
