Todd Rundgren — Mercy Mercy lyrics

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

Well I went to see a gypsy
And had my fortune read
She said, "Todd, your baby's gonna leave you.
The bags are packed up under the bed. "
And I cried...

I said, "If you leave me baby,
Girl if you put me down,
Well I'm going to the nearest river child,
And jump overboard and drown. "

Well now hey hey baby, hey hey now
What are you trying to do?
Well now hey hey baby, hey hey now
Please don't say we're through.

I say, "If you stay here baby,
Tell you what I'm going to do.
I'm going to work two jobs, seven days a week,
And bring my money home to you. "
And I'm crying...
