lagē [so sexy]
I was sitting in a corner when I saw her
She was different from everyone, the most beautiful of all
Then my eyes connected with her eyes
[in Punjabi and English]
Then I smiled once, twice
One hand in the air, the other in a glass
I didn't even know what was in the glass
But she was dancing slowly shaking her waist
Looking so sexy

[Baby, do you freak like you dance]?
['Cause you dance like a pro]
[in Punjabi]
She looked at me, I looked at her
The tension in the air was growing,
I swear on God, never having drunk,
yeah, still felt a little intoxicated
[next 4 lines in Punjabi and English]
Unable to stop (myslef), I went to her
I said "I wanna talk"
She said to me, "speak" (go ahead)
I went closer to her and I asked:
Baby do you freak like you dance?
'Cause you dance like a pro

Don't move like you have been moving
It seems to me you have kept sending me to meet God
Your body is hotter than a chinchilla fur
What did your mother feed as you were maturing?
My heart comes to a stop when you get down low
Have some mercy on me, please me
Don't take my life, my life, this way [x2]
I searched, but, nothing deficient came out
The earth slipped from underneath my feet
Now also stop teasing in this way!
Hands joined, and I'm saying "please"

Mercy (in English in the original), is a 2017 song and video clip composed and written by the Indian rapper Badshah.

In the video clip, Badshah narrates how he was impressed by the gait and moves of a girl he met while having a drink at a club.

The video was shot at the O2 Entertainment complex in London, England, and inside a Boeing plane, where the dancer Lauren Gottlieb and a troupe of other dancers accompany the song.
