|Song by Cat Stevens|
|from the album Tea for the Tillerman|
|Released||23 November 1970|

|Tea for the Tillerman track listing|
The song reflects awareness of the turmoil of the late 1960s and the issues involved: war, urban sprawl, poverty, ecological disaster, and the future of humankind. The same themes and concerns are repeated later in many of his songs.
The song was one of several of Stevens's/Islam's songs that were used for the soundtrack of the 1971 movie, Harold and Maude. The film features the song during a scene where lead character Harold is driving past a military graveyard, panning out to show a vast number of little tiny white graves, thus underscoring the point of the song.
