“Mercy” lyrics:

[Couplet 1]
Je suis née ce matin, je m’appelle Mercy
Au milieu de la mer, entre deux pays
Mercy

[Couplet 2]
C’était un long chemin et Maman l’a pris
Elle m’avait dans la peau, huit mois et demi
Oh oui, huit mois et demi
On a quitté la maison, c’était la guerre
Sûr qu’elle avait raison, y’avait rien à perdre
Oh non, excepté la vie

[Refrain]
Je suis née ce matin, je m’appelle Mercy
On m’a tendu la main et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans, je m’appelle Mercy

[Couplet 3]
Si il est urgent de naître, comprenez aussi
Qu’il est urgent de renaître, quand tout est détruit
Mercy

[Couplet 4]
Et là devant nos yeux y’avait l’ennemie
Une immensité bleue peut-être infinie
Mais oui, on en connaissait le prix
Surgissant d’une vague, un navire ami
A redonné sa chance à notre survie
C’est là, que j’ai poussé mon premier cri

[Refrain]
Je suis née ce matin, je m’appelle Mercy
On m’a tendu la main et je suis en vie
Je suis tous ces enfants que la mer a pris
Je vivrai cent mille ans, je m’appelle Mercy

[Pont]
Derrière les sémaphores, serait-ce le bon port ?
Que sera demain ? Face à face ou main dans la main
Que sera demain ?
Je suis née ce matin, je m’appelle Mercy

[Outro]
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, Mercy
Mercy, Mercy, je vais bien merci

The lyrics in English:

I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
Far out at sea
Between two countries, Mercy
It was a long path and Mum walked it
She had me in her skin, eight and a half months
Oh yes, eight and a half months
We left home, it was at war
Sure she had it right, there was nothing to lose
Oh no, apart from life
I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They lent me a hand
And I am alive
I am all of those children
Whom the sea took away
I’ll live one hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy
And there, before our eyes, was the enemy
A blue immensity, perhaps infinite
But yes, we knew the price of it
Arising from a wave, a friendly ship
Gave its chance back to our survival
And it’s here that I let out my first cry
I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
They lent me a hand
And I am alive
I am all of those children
Whom the sea took away
I’ll live one hundred thousand years
My name is Mercy
I was born this morning
My name is Mercy
Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
Thanks, thanks, I’m alright thanks
