Leaves were green and Spring was sprouting,
coast to coast people were shouting.
The sparrow has fallen and gone away,
and took with him brother Marvin Gaye!
May was a very sad time of the year,
tornadoes, hurricanes people living in fear.
Our brother sung just like a bird,
people felt and believe his word.
A voice sent from heaven above,
the sparrow fallen here comes the dove.
Ascending high yes high in the sky,
for Marvin has looked in Jesus eye!
What tribulations trials in life,
at life's peak yet so much strife.
When God above his children call,
we're dressed with grace as we fall.
His dream I hope will live forever,
peace and love us sticking together,
drums so distant and so nigh,
as Marvin sings through out the sky.
What's going and Mercy mercy me!
