Did Duffy forget the safeword? Oh… please gag her!

It’s getting unbearable… It’s a good song, but 2 times an hour? 3 times an hour? 6-8 times a day if you have to drive a bit longer… Different radio stations… Every day… Every month… “Mercy!! Mercy!!!” Sounds like BDSM, does not it:

I love you
but I gotta stay true
my morals 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’d better release me

Why wont you release me
yeah yeah
break it down

I can’t say it’s the best lyrics I have even seen, but Duffy definitely sounds like she’s tightly bound, properly taken care of, but has forgotten the safeword.

One thing is missing, though… A good gag. (She would look good bound and gagged).

In case you’re lucky enough and the song has not driven you mad yet, this is the official video (Duffy’s wearing nice shoes). And this is a US version.

  1. Sure, this is the official video:
    It’s not that cheerful, so it will not be in such a torturing rotation like “Mercy”.

    I hate the way the radio stations promote something. After a month or two of such an aggressive rotation the being promoted song is getting repulsive. The list is endless: “Mercy”, “Million bicycles”, “Hotel California”, etc…
