Marvin Gaye--'What's Going On?'

 

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today, eheh

Father, father
We don't need to escalate
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 lovin' here today, oh oh oh

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

In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on brother
Right on babe

Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply 'cause our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh oh oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
C'mon talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Yeah, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on, ooh ooo ooo ooo
Right on baby
Right on baby

NOT Marvin Gaye--'What's Going On?'

 

People, people,
see the world is crying
My brothers, brothers, there's no denying
That there's bullshit too many are buying
You know we've got to find a way
back into sanity's grace, eheh


 

Voters, voted
not with their heads, but their hearts
Far-right is not the answer,
but uncertain's off the charts
Somehow get us back into sanity's grace
How'd we ever get so far off base?

Ignored the obvious warning signs
Saw only what they wanted to see,
now just how bad will everything be?
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Yeah, what's going on
Ah, what's going on

In the mean time--
you're screwed, sister,
you're screwed, brother
We're all screwed

People, people, how'd everything get so wrong?
history will judge us
and it won't be long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
of better understanding the total mess today,
Oh oh oh

Picket lines bother not at all
our leaders rule with insanity,
they make me heave
I cannot see
What's going on
Yeah, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
no telling what's going on, ooh ooo ooo ooo
Right on baby
Right on baby
