Song Meaning
Verse 1
I went to work this mo'nin'
My foreman looked me in the eye
He said, "Fella I don't know what's wrong with ya
But you look sick enough to die"
Verse 2
He sent me to the company doctor
And he examined from head to toe
Whatever's wrong with ya, young man
My x-rays just won't show
Verse 3
I say, angel of mercy
Won't you please look down on me?
Angel of mercy
A little mercy is all I need
Verse 4
The finance company
They just can't receive my check
They say they want a payment by Friday
Or they want all-a the furniture back
Verse 5
I went to the credit union
To try to get myself a loan
They said, "I would let ya have it young man
But we hear that you won't be workin' here much longer
Verse 6
Angel of mercy
Won't you please look down on me?
Oh, angel of mercy
A little mercy is all I need
Verse 7
Lord have mercy
Oh angel
Oh
Oh
Verse 8
Cut my lights off this mo'nin'
They set my furniture out doors
I was listenin' to the weatherman 'while ago
An' he's says it's gonna rain an' snow
Verse 9
My daughter's got pneumonia
An' my son is down with the flu
My whole family's sufferin' from malnutrition
And I can't even 'fford them soup
Verse 10
I say, angel of mercy
Won't you please look down on me?
Oh, angel of mercy
A little mercy is all I need
