Death don't have no mercy in this land.
Death don't have no mercy in this land;
It comes to your house, it won't stay long,
Somebody will ge gone, 'cause
Death don't have no mercy in our land.

Death will go into any family in this land, I know him.
Death comes into any family in this land.
He's going to come in your family,
He won't stay long;
Look in your bed, and you'll be gone
- Wake up dead.

Death don't have no mercy in this land.
Death don't have no mercy in this land;
One night, you go to bed,
The very next morning going to wake up dead,
Because Father Death has got no mercy at all.

Never takes a vacation in our land.
Death don't take no vacation...
He'll come to your house but he won't stay long;
Look in the bedroom, mother will be gone.
I swear, he's got no mercy in this land.

He'll leave you, standing and crying in this land.
Death will leave you, standing alone and crying in this land;
He'll come to your house, he won't stay long.
Look in the bed, someone else is gone;
Death don't have mercy in our land.

Death's always in a hurry, I understand.
Death's always in a hurry, I can understand;
He won't give you time to get ready.
He won't you even say: ready, steady go!
You gotta go when it comes
'Cause he's got no mercy in this land.
(Who cares.)
Got no mercy in this land.
Death's got no mercy in this land...
