lyrics

I ain’t ever been a lover but I’ll never understand
How you crushed the universe with your red right hand
Maybe I was praying in the belly of the beast
But God he made the man then the man made me

A canary down the coalmine singing the sunshine
Maybe I’ve been dancing in dark too long boy
To get a reaction to my satisfaction
Got me a Kalishnikov - now watch the stars align

“Baby stick em up – oh do you feel lucky punk?”
Cos my little friend says that this party is over
He’s gonna make the light behind your eyes cry
Mercy! Mercy!

I ain’t ever been a lover
So I’ll never understand
How you crushed the universe with your red right hand
I guess that you were sleeping in the belly of the beast
But God he made the man
Then the man made me

A canary down the coalmine singing the sunshine
Maybe I’ve been dancing in dark too long boy
To get a reaction to my satisfaction
Got me a Kalishnikov - now watch the stars align

“Baby stick em up – oh do you feel lucky punk?”
Cos my little friend says that this party is over
He’s gonna make the light behind your eyes cry
Mercy! Mercy!
Mercy! Mercy!

My little friend says that the party is over
He’s gonna make the light behind your eyes cry

Mercy! Mercy!
