Everybody's Cryin' Mercy Lyrics

Jamison Ross
I can't believe the things I'm seeing
I wonder 'bout some things I've heard
Everybody's crying mercy
And don't know the meaning of the word

A bad enough situation
It's sure enough getting worse
Everybody's crying justice
Just as long as it's business first

Toe to toe
Touch and go
Give a cheer
Get your souvenir

People running 'round in circles
Don't know what they're headed for
Everybody's crying peace on earth
Just as soon as we win this war

[Break - piano solo]

I can't believe the things I'm seeing
I wonder 'bout some things I've heard
Everybody's crying mercy
And don't know the meaning of the word

A bad enough situation
It's sure enough getting worse
Everybody's crying justice
Just as long as it's business first

Straight ahead
Knock 'em dead
Pack your kit
Choose your hypocrite

Well you don't have to go to off-Broadway
To see something plain absurd
Everybody's crying mercy
When they don't know the meaning of the word
Everybody's crying mercy
And don't know the meaning of the word
