(Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot)
(Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot)
(Mercy, mercy, mercy)
(Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot)
(Doot, doot) (Hey)

I love you Mercy, Mercy
Oh, you know, you're such a beautiful thing
You're laying kisses on me girl
And your knowin' all the pleasure it brings
Ah, ah, ah, ah

You're spending all my money
Oh, you're making me crawl up the wall
Ah, Mercy, Mercy
You're doing me without any mercy at all
And I'm calling to you:

Chorus:
Have mercy, mercy have mercy on me
Have mercy, mercy, mercy on me
Have mercy, mercy have mercy on me
Have mercy, mercy, mercy on me

Come on!

(Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot)
(Mercy baby)

A man's supposed to be stronger
And he's so used to-a getting his way
Ah, but Mercy girl you got my number
And I'll do any thing that you say

But stop playing with me

Chorus

(Let's go!)
(Oh, have mercy now)
(Yeh, yeh, yeh, come on!)
(Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot)
(Ah, baby, have mercy-yeh)
(Doot, doot, doot, doot, doot)
(Ah, you know, no, no ,no, no ,no)

Chorus

(Everybody sing!)

 

ANDY RATING:

I absolutely love this song! You'll be screaming for "mercy" if you bad-mouth this song in front of me! Really, they don't get any cooler than this. Heck, I'm gonna put it on right now!

 

NOTES:

. . . try to keep track of all the Ohio Express songs that have "do it", "doing me", or "do it to me" in the lyrics . . . three guesses what they mean . . . with Roll It Up as the B-Side, maybe the best single ever . . . okay, I got my first kiss to this song . . . pretty good little rocker too . . . love to know who did the drums . . . okay . . . "have Mercy on me" . . . "Mercy" is the name of a girl, right? . . .
