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 lovin' here today, yeah

Father, father, we don't need to escalate
You see, 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, oh

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

In the mean time, right on, baby, right on, right on

Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply 'cause our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh, oh, oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
C'mon, 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

Right on, right on, baby
Right on, brother, right on
Right on, right
