What's Going On lyrics

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
And brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know, you've got to find a way
To bring back love here today

Father, father
This don't need to escalate
This is war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring back loving here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Just talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on, What's going on?
What's going on? What's going on

Mother, mother
Everybody thinks we're wrong
Who are they to judge us?
Just because our hair is long
You know, we've got to find a way
Bring some understanding here today

You know you've got to find a way
To bring back some loving here, today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
But just talk to me, so you can see
What's going on? What's going on
What's going on? What's going on

What's going on? What's going on
What's going on? What's going on
Someday I tell me, you tell you, I tell you
What's going on

Father, father, father, father
I tell you what's going
You tell me what's going
