 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Have mercy, have mercy baby
Have mercy, have mercy on me
Well I went to see a gypsy
And had my fortune read

She said, "Todd, your baby's gonna leave you.
The bags are packed up under the bed."
And I cried...
I said, "If you leave me baby,

Girl if you put me down,
Well I'm going to the nearest river child,
And jump overboard and drown."
Well now hey hey baby, hey hey now

What are you trying to do?
Well now hey hey baby, hey hey now
Please don't say we're through.
I say, "If you stay here baby,

Tell you what I'm going to do.
I'm going to work two jobs, seven days a week,
And bring my money home to you."
And I'm crying...
