Trinidad) Yup, it's "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" by Marvin Gaye. That and "What's Goin' On" are very similar. Heh, I was once in a band that played the two songs as a medley! The chord progression is: E C#m7 F# B7 I know the lyrics by heart: Whoa, oh mercy mercy me Things aint what they used to be oh no Where did all the blue skies go? Poison is the wind that blows From the north and south and east Oh mercy mercy me Things aind what they used to be no no Oil wasted on the oceans and upon our seas Fish full of mercury Oh, mercy mercy me Oh Things ain't what they used to be oh no Radiation underground and in the sky Animals and birds who live nearby all die Oh mercy mercy me Things ain't what they used to be What about this overcrowded land How much more abuse from man can she stand?

This song was written in 1970, I believe. Marvin Gaye also wrote "Inner City Blues." Those songs are still relevant today. The man was clearly ahead of his time. -- 30 -::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: E l s o n T r i n i d a d _______________________________ etrinida@scf.usc.edu /_____________ / University of Southern California /_____________ / Los Angeles, California O.J. did what Tom Arnold should have done instead. :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
