Marvin Gaye Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) Lyrics

Last updated: 04/11/2013 12:29:19 PM

Woo ah, mercy mercy me
Ah things ain't 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
Woo mercy, mercy me, mercy father
Ah things ain't what they used to be, no no
Oil wasted on the ocean and upon our seas, fish full of mercury
Ah oh mercy, mercy me
Ah things ain't what they used to be, no no
Radiation under ground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
Oh mercy, mercy me
Ah things ain't what 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
My Lord... My sweet Lord

R&B music for the Soul | Reviewer: PAULA COLANDER | 4/11/13

When Marvin was with Motown it might not have been the bestof everything, but the Music was undeniably timeless, those artist sang their material so effortlessly ; i can just imagine Marvin laying flat on his back singing as it has been reported he did with such swagg!

I Grew up in Detroit not far from where Motown was, and it was exciting then and still is now with the memories!!!!!!!!
BUT, in the words of the Mighty, Mighty O'Jays "I LOVE MUSIC"

Beautiful song | Reviewer: Laura Merdian | 6/1/07

This is one of Motown's beautiful songs and I really love it.
