Todd Rundgren – Marvin Gaye Trilogy lyrics

What's going on
Oh, mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Oh, brother, brother, brother
There's for too many of you dying
(too many dying)
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some loving here today yeah
Father, father
There's no need to escalate (no need, there's no need, no need)
You see war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some love and understanding here today
Picket lines, with picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Come on come on talk to me
So you can see what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on

Mercy Mercy me (Ecology)
Oh mercy, mercy me
Oh things ain't what used to be
Oh where did all the blue skies go?
Poison is the air that blows from the north and south
Poison underground and in the sky
Birds and animals who live nearby bye bye die
I want you
