Marvin Gaye, Mercy, Mercy Me: The Ecology; Now A Break from Our Sponsor

It's possible that I've posted this song before, Marvin Gaye's classic, "Mercy, Mercy Me: The Ecology." Still, I couldn't help posting it again as I've been totally absorbed with news on the great oil spill that's devastating the ecology of the Gulf Coast.



If you'd like to keep up with the ecological news and solutions for the Gulf Coast, I recommend Len Bahr's blog, LACOASTPOST.com? His information can help you evaluate information such as the effectiveness of La. Gov. Bobby Jindal's dredging/sandberm plan.

Mercy, Mercy Me: The Ecology
Lyrics by 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
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"


In addition to this information and regarding posting Marvin Gaye's classic, June is Black Music Month.
