"Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)"

(As recorded by Marvin Gaye)
MARVIN GAYE

Oo oo aa mercy mercy me
Ah things aint' what they used to be no no
Where did all the blue skies go
Poison is the wind that blows from the north and south and east.

Oo mercy mercy me
Mercy father
Ah things ain't what they used to be no no
Oil wasted on the ocean and up on our sea
Fish full of mercury.

Ah oh mercy mercy me
Ah things ain't what they used to be no no no
Radiation underground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live near by are dying.

Oh mercy mercy me
Ah things ain't the way they used to be
What about this overcrowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand
Oh na na my sweet Lord
No no na na na
My, my Lord, my sweet Lord.
