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? 

I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Said I want you to love me
Just like I want you
Oh, I'll give you all the love 
You want in return, sweet darlin'
Your happiness is all I crave
Ooh, it's too bad - it's just too sad
You don't want me now
But I'm gonna change
Your mind someway, somehow, baby
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Said I want you to love me
Just like I want you
A one-way love is just a fantasy
Oh, sugar
To share is precious pure and fair, ooh
Don't play with something
You should cherish for your life, baby
Don't you want to care?
Lonely? - I'm there
