French
Je suis née ce matin, je m’appelle Mercy
Au milieu de la mer, entre deux pays, Mercy

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
C’est sûr qu’elle avait raison, y avait rien à perdre
Oh non, excepté la vie

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

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

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

Je suis née ce matin, je m’appelle Mercy

Merci, merci, merci, merci
Merci, merci, je vais bien, merci
Merci, merci, merci, merci
Merci, merci, je vais bien, merci

Merci, merci, merci, merci
Merci, merci, je vais bien, merci
Merci, merci, merci, merci
Merci, merci, je vais bien, merci

Translation
I was born this morning, my name is Mercy
In the open sea, between two lands, Mercy

It was a long way to go and mom faced it
She had me under her skin for eight and a half months
Oh yeah, eight and a half months

We left home, there was war
Of course she was right, nothing left to lose
Oh no, nothing but our lives

I was born this morning, my name is Mercy
Someone held out a hand so that I’m alive
I am all these children that the sea took away
I’ll live for a hundred thousand years, my name is Mercy

And there, in front of us was standing the enemy
A blue immensity, maybe infinite
But we knew well the price of it

Rising over a wave, a friendly boat
Gave another chance at our survival
That’s when I let out my first cry

I was born this morning, my name is Mercy
Someone held out a hand so that I’m alive
I am all these children that the sea took away
I’ll live for a hundred thousand years, my name is Mercy

I was born this morning, my name is Mercy

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, I am fine, thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, I am fine, thank you

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, I am fine, thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, I am fine, thank you
