Duffy - Mercy Video and Lyrics




Mercy by Duffy, Music Video and Lyrics

Mercy is the second single from the album Rockferry by Duffy, released on February 25, 2008.
It was Jo Whiley’s record of the week on BBC Radio 1 for the week commencing 14th January 2008.

The song is just brilliant, so refreshing and the video is amazing, she is very talented and so are the dancers.
I hope she brings the younger masses to enjoy old soul and motown style music that will never disappear.

Listen the song here, this is the official video.

Duffy - Mercy Lyrics

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I love you
But I gotta stay true
My moral’s got me on my knees
I’m begging please
Stop playing games

I don’t know what this is
But you got me good
Just like you knew you would
I don’t know what you do
But you do it well
I’m under your spell

You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
I said you better release me

Now you think that I
Will be some thing on the side
But you got to understand
That I need a man
Who can take my hand, yes I do

I don’t know what this is
But you got me good
Just like you knew you would
I don’t know what you do
But you do it well
I’m under your spell

You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
I said you better release me

I’m begging you for mercy
Just why won’t you release me
I’m begging you for mercy
You got me begging
You got me begging
You got me begging

Mercy
Why won’t you release me
I’m begging you for mercy
Why wont you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
Bring it on

Mercy
Begging you for mercy
You got me begging
Down on my knees
I said mercy
Begging you for mercy
You got me begging

  14. Hans Says:

    To me it sounds like the words in the beginning of the song are “Hate to be an addict to the verse now”.

    I haven’t been able to pick out the words a bit later in the song yet, but I’m working on it ;)

    I JUST LOVE THIS SONG IT IS AWSOME!!!!
    WELLDONE DUFFY
    + ROCK ON WALES!

  21. LoboTommy Says:

    what happened to my post from yesterday?

    anyway, as a response to #14 from Hans - i think the rest of the lyrics in the backgound are

    u make me think as I don’t care
    cuz u dont know what I got and
    I wanna get more than i’m asking for
    but I just don want to waste my time
    you think that I better let it go
    just like there’s nothing in this world
    I know that I gonna play this song
    like I just dont know anything at all

    These lyrics might be wrong, after all, I’m just a nobody from Norway trying to listen, but maybe, just maybe I got it? bytheway. i’m REALLY unsure about the last line “I just dont know anything at all” sounds like the last word is “upon”, then the words don’t fit. so if anybody can listen in hard and help out to get it right… :D Anybody else wanna give it a go?

  22. admin Says:

    We are very sorry LoboTommy, we got hacked last night and we didn’t have a database backup for the latest comments :cry:
    Why would someone hack our website ?!?!?
    There are some mean people in the world. :(
    Once again we apologize, and we appreciate your efforts to keep us updated with the lyrics.

  23. Pily Says:

    Please, can someone tell me what does she say in the first line, when she is not singing yet? English is not my first languange and I cant understand, and nobody has posted that first line in any web where the lyrics are….

    Please!!!!

    Thanks!!!!

  24. Pily Says:

    I mean before the first “yeah yeah yeah”

    :D

  25. Greek girl Says:

    She’s white!
    Unbelievable to hear such a voice in a white woman!
    Now I admire her more!

  26. Srbine Says:

    Greek Girl
    I agree with u

  27. raees Says:

    i love the song !!!!!

    duffy rooooooleeeeees

  28. Tom Says:

    Too cool and a great song to dance to. Over and over!

  29. LoboTommy Says:

    “Pily Says:
    April 27th, 2008 at 7:10 pm
    Please, can someone tell me what does she say in the first line”

    i believ the first line is : “hate to be addicted to the verse now”

  30. Craig Says:

    i’m not sure it’s “Hate to be addicted to the verse now” but it may be and is closer then i’ve come… for some reason I keep thinking that the last few words are take it to the past now or take it to the back now… maybe if we could slow down the song and listen to the first line that way??? (it might be to inaudible though…) :)

  31. james bariffe Says:

    i love this song so much i whached duffy on paul and i could not get hold of her name so i called my cosen and he did not know duffy name because i thout that the song was; you got me begining i a vergin… so i went on top 10 and it said mercy -duffy so i tiped in duffy on youtube and the song came up and i love it and i have not stoped playing it since.

  32. Duffy Mercy Says:

    i absolutely love this song

  33. Megan & Daniella Says:

    Loving This Song Mate!(Y) x

  34. Lucy Says:

    It’s “Hit the beat and take it to the verse now.” 100% definitely.

  35. Joe Says:

    Could it be: “Hit the beat and take it to the first note” ?

  36. Mark Says:

    Mercy is a Howlin Wolf original tune called ‘Who’s Been Talking’, with new lyrics rambled over it, basically.
    I’ve heard the tune to Warwick Avenue before as well.
    This sort of stuff makes me aware that this artist is just another manufactured and produced ‘chick’, chosen for the look by some studio svengali who want to foisrt yet another lowtalent on the ££$$ paying public.
    How long before her vocal is bolstered by effects and ‘tuned’ by the mixing desk? Probably already been done.

  37. nikki-ferrari Says:

    every now and then u hear a song and you just know its going to be popular without saying…… this is one of those songs….im betting it will be in the top ten charts, and ranked at number 0ne!!! Ive never heard this girl sing b4, but if she develops the style and grace she has put into this song in all her other songs to come……. this performer will hit and rock the world….oh did i tell ya …i luv it

  38. Fish Says:

    Lucy is right it is “HIT THE BEAT AND TAKE IT TO THE VERSE NOW”
    Any way, luv this song and im gonna sing it for our school talent show. Thanks to Duffy IM GONNA ROCK THE SCHOOL!!!!!!!

  39. Cat Deeley ROX Says:

    Wanna Know The Lyrics??? Here they are!!!
    background voice:
    u make me think as I don’t care
    cuz u dont know what I got and
    I wanna get more than i’m asking for
    but I just don want to waste my time
    you think that I better let it go
    just like there’s nothing in this world
    I know that I gonna play this song
    like I just dont know anything at all

  40. billy Says:

    I f***ing hate this song. No matter what I do, when I’m in my friend’s car, it’s always playing on the radio when I get out and then it’s stuck in my head for hours.
    I actually like the music a lot, but the lyrics are absolutely idiotic. In fact, I think such good music was wasted on such dull, repetative lyrics. But no matter how good the music is (or actually, no matter how good the music COULD be) it will always be ruined by this ridiculous woman crooning the same goddamn line over and over again.

  41. frayed Says:

    #36 Mark,

    You’re full of it.

    #40 billy,

    What hill you been living on?

  42. Klo3 Says:

    I think she says “Hit the beat and take it to the best now”

  43. tvmaker Says:

    The line is: “Hit the beat and take it to the VERSE now”

  44. kass Says:

    it sounds like
    get the beat and take it to the bust stop
    thats what me and my sister say
    lol

  46. whyteflavr Says:

  47. sandy Says:

  48. Linda Komer Says:

  49. feng Says:

    i like this song , artist , lyrics and the video . i love you all

  50. Jes Says:

    First line is “hit the beat and take it bass now”
    From iTunes

  51. Mander Says:

    The first line is definitely “Hit the beat and take it to the bass now.” As for the rest of it…no idea!
    Cat Deely Rox is right about the background lyrics from 2:12 to 2:30…

  52. Desertose83 Says:

    “I don’t know what this is
    but you got me good
    just like you knew you would”

    LOL. I duno why but whenever I listen to this line I just get a fit and I start laughing like crazy.. Cant get enough of this song.

  53. Tanya Says:

  54. Princess of Soul Says:

    My daughter played this song for me. I told her that I had heard this song on “Blind Side” when Michael Oher and the lady’s son was riding in his new truck. I have introduced this song to many of my friends and everyone loves it. Duffy has a nice voice and her videos are great! Especially, the video with the men shoes on fire. Also, this song can be played while exercising.

  55. llazy Says:

    Love this song- sounds totally retro/ 60’s.
    I heard the howlin’ wolf song and has similar sound but not the same.
    This is way better anyway.

  56. Brooke Says:

    What dose it say under the main voicals thats really hard to make out thats what I’m trying to fighre out.. :]

  57. sandie roberts Says:

    beautiful and classy lady, to match the song

  58. Melissa Says:

    I read the first line was “Hit the beat and take it to the bass now” and I used to sing it like that all the time….but I listened very carefully and it does say “hit the beat and take it to the VERSE now”…you can hear the “R” in the word!…really!!!! pay attention to the “R” in “VERSE” it does say that!
