Music Monday - Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)

We can all use a little fun on Monday, right?  It's time for some #musicmonday action!  There are a lot of great songs about the environment out there, so why don't bring some music into our Mondays and celebrate them?

Today's Music Monday is one of the best motown songs ever:  "Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)" by the one and only Marvin Gaye.  The whole album has a very socially conscious theme and "Mercy, Mercy Me" is about the environment.

An excerpt: 

Mercy, mercy me, mercy
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 underground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
