Robert Palmer – Mercy Mercy Me

July 30, 2016

Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, 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, west, south and east
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain’t what they used to be
No, no
Oil wasted on the oceans and our seas
Fish full of mercury
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain’t what they used to be
No, no
Radiation underground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
Oh, oh mercy, mercy me
Oh, things ain’t what they used to be
No, no
What about this over-crowded land
How much more abuse from man can she stand?

 

Comment from Jerry Sullivan :

This protest song from Marvin brought Motown into the fray of the day… war, ecology, human rights… and he did it against the wishes of the Motown bosses. A brave move and done with such class!! Miss you Marvin and all the others who lost out to drugs and booze and the pressures of success. RIP BROTHER!!
