Bono:
Mother, mother
It's too many of you crying

Chris:
Brother, brother, brother
It's far too many of you dying
You know you've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here to stay

Bono:
Father, father
We don't need to escalate
And war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate

Chris:
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here to stay
Picket lines won't block our way

Bono:
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, and you can see
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on
What's going on

Bono:
Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
But who are they to judge us?
Together we can be strong

Chris:
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here to stay
Picket lines won't block our way
Don't punish me with brutality
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
