What's Going On - 2006 Version

Lyricist:     Composer:

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 loving here today

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

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

Mother, mother
Everybody thinks we're wrong
But who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today

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
Oh what's going on, what's going on
Oh 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
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
