Mercy Mercy Me

Lyricist: Marvin Gaye    Composer: Marvin Gaye



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

Ah mercy mercy me
Oh things ain't what they used to be
Oil wasted on the ocean and upon our seas, fish full of mercury

Ah mercy mercy me
Oh 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 ya
Ah things ain't what they used to be
What about this overcrowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand?
