Keb' Mo' – What's Happening Brother lyrics

Hey baby, what 'cha know good?
I'm just gettin' back but you knew I would
War is hell, when will it end?
When will people start gettin' together again

Are things really gettin' better
Like the newspaper said?
What else is new my friend
Besides what I read?

Can't find no work, can't find no job my friend
Money is tighter than it's ever been
Say man, I just don't understand

What's goin' on across this land
Ah, what's happening brother?
Oh ya, what's happening brother?

Are they still gettin' down where we used to go and dance?
Will our ball club win the pennant?
Do you think they have a chance?

And tell me friend, how in the world have you been?
What's the deal my man, what's happening brother?
What's happening brother?

What's been shakin' up and down the line?
I want to know 'cause I'm slightly behind the time
