Whatever happened to the brother man
Living on the streets
Sometimes I wonder what he's doing
'Cause he could have been me

Whatever happened to the wonderful
Family seal
When Mama used to watch us
With a smiling face, while we played

Praises to the Maker for the times we used to know
Been thinking ’bout the good days ’cept it's hard to let them go
(Yeah)
Tremble runnin’ rampant, life ain’t what it used to be
Now God has blessed America, it's up to you and me

Whatever happened to the brother man
Living on the streets
Sometimes I wonder what he's doing
'Cause he could have been me

Whatever happened to the wonderful
Family seal
When Mama used to watch us
With a smiling face, while we played

We could play it 'cause we're living in the greatest nation
We should be thankful living love, bringing celebration
God has blessed America now where's your appreciation

Whatever happened to the brother man
Living on the streets
Sometimes I wonder what he's doing
'Cause he could have been me

Whatever happened to the wonderful
Family seal
When mama used to watch us
With a smiling face, while we played

World's spinning in the wrong direction
Said we need a little affection, yeah
And if you think it so, better let me know

(Please let me know)
Don't let me go
(Don't let me go)

Whatever happened to the brother man
Living on the streets
Sometimes I wonder what he's doing
'Cause he could have been me

Whatever happened to the wonderful
Family seal
When mama used to watch us
With a smiling face, while we played

Whatever happened to the love and the family seal?
Whatever happened to the peace and the joy divine
Whatever happened to the days that we used to know
Whatever happened to the love that we used to show

Sometimes I wonder, sometimes I wonder
Where mama used to watch us, said where mama used to watch us
Sometimes I wonder
Mama used to watch us

Whatever happened to the brother man
Living on the streets
Sometimes I wonder what he's doing
'Cause he could have been me

Whatever happened to the wonderful
Family seal
When mama used to watch us
With a smiling face, while we played
