In a dark backroom or a crowded street
In private life or public speech
Keep everything away from the stifling grip
The bureaucratic eye, the red tape brigade

It doesn't really matter if you don't wanna stay
We'll do very nicely without them OK and oh yeah
Have mercy mercy on me
Have mercy mercy on me

Never occurred to us that we were doing any wrong
Never occurred to us 'cause we were harming anyone

On a crowded street or dark backroom
In private life or public speech
Keep everything away from the stifling grip
The bureaucratic eye, the red tape brigade

It doesn't really matter if you don't wanna stay
We'll do very nicely without them OK and oh yeah
Have mercy mercy on me
Have mercy mercy on me

Never occurred to 'cause we were harming anyone
Never occurred to us that we were doing any wrong

Have mercy mercy on me
Have mercy mercy on me
Mercy mercy mercy on me

Have mercy mercy on me
Have mercy mercy on me
Mercy mercy mercy on me
