Icehouse – Mercy On The Boy lyrics
If I ever get out of here
Well I might just set alight to this town
Swinging out that ball and chain
Gonna, bring these four walls tumbling down
So you take a fool like me
Yeah and throw away the key
Spend my wasted days doing time
Breaking these rocks in my head
But you know you`re better off dead
When the judges bring the hammer down
A little
Mercy on the boy
You know it ain`t easy

If I ever get out of here
Gonna be a price to pay for this crime
Well there ain`t no place to hide
And there ain`t no god on your side `til the kingdom comes
Gonna bend these cold steel bars
Gonna scream it till somebody hears
Ain`t a cage that can keep me inside
Breaking these rocks in my head
But you know you`re better off dead
When the judges bring the hammer down
Just a little
Mercy on the boy
You know it ain`t easy

Mercy on the boy
