Have mercy
Have mercy, baby
Have mercy
Have mercy on me

Well, I went to see the gypsy
To have my fortune read
She said "Man, your baby gonna leave you
Her bags are packed up under the bed", that's right

Have mercy
Have mercy, baby
Have mercy
Have mercy on me

But if you leave me, baby
Girl, if you put me down
I'm gonna make it to the nearest river, child
And jump overboard and drown, that's right

Have mercy
Have mercy, baby
Have mercy
Have mercy on me

I said, "Hey, hey, baby, hey, hey now
What you trying to do?
Hey, hey baby, hey, hey now
Please don't say we're through, yeah, yeah, yeah"

Have mercy
Have mercy, baby
Have mercy
Have mercy on me

But if you stay, baby
I tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna work two jobs, seven days a week
And bring my money home to you, that's right

Have mercy
Please have mercy, baby
Have mercy
Have mercy on me

Have mercy
Have mercy, baby
Have mercy
Have mercy on me
