"In a garden full of roses my hands were tied behind me
My Cousin was working miracles, I wondered if he'd find me
The moon was turned toward me like a platter made of gold
My death, it almost bored me so often was it told"

("Mercy", 1988)

Jesus met the woman at the well Gesù incontrò la donna al pozzo
Jesus met the woman at the well Gesù incontrò la donna al pozzo
And he told her, everything that she'd done, E le disse tutto quello che aveva fatto,
that she'd done tutto quello che aveva fatto
And he said, woman, look-a here woman, E disse, donna, guarda qui
Tell me where is your husband? Dov'è tuo marito?
She said whoa, whoa, whoa, I don't have one Lei disse, hey, hey, hey non ne ho uno
He said, woman, look-a here woman, Disse, donna, guarda qui
They tell me you have five husbands Mi dicono che tu ne hai cinque di mariti
And that man you have now sure ain't one E quell'uomo che hai adesso di sicuro non è uno di loro
She went running, crying, God help me Lei scappò via urlando, Dio aiutami
She said whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, Disse, Hey, Hey, Hey
You must be the prophet Tu devi essere il profeta
Because you told me everything that I've done Perché mi hai raccontato tutto quello che ho fatto
