Daryl Hall & John Oates – What's Going On lyrics

Mother, mother, there's too many of you crying

Brother, brother, brother, there's far too many of you dying

You know we'ver got to find a way

To bring some lovin' here today, hey

Father, father, we don't need to escalate

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

Chorus #1:

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

Ahhh....

Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong

Ah but who are they to judge us

Simply cause our hair is long

Ah you know we'ver got to find a way

To brind some understanding here today

Chorus #2:

Picket lines and picket signs

Don't punish me with brutality

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
