Mercy Mercy Mercy

“Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” is a jazz song written by Joe Zawinul in 1966 for Julian “Cannonball” Adderley and his album Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! Live at ‘The Club’. The song is the title track of the album and became a surprise hit. “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” went to #2 on the Soul chart and #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.-Wikipedia

My baby she may not a-look
Like one of those bunnies out of the playboy club
But she got somethin’ much greater than gold
Crazy ’bout that girl ’cause she got so much soul
I said she got the kind of lovin’, kissin’ and a-huggin’
Sure is mellow, glad that I’m her fellow
And I know that she knocks me off my feet
(Have mercy on me)
‘Cause she knocks me off my feet
There is no girl in the whole world
That can love me like you do, yeah
