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 loving here today, hey hey

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 to find a way
To bring some loving here today, oh oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me (sister)
So you can see (sister)
What’s going on, what’s going on…

Right on, baby
Right on

Mother, mother
Everybody thinks we are wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today

Picket lines and picket signs (brother)
Don’t punish me with brutality (brother)
Come on talk to me
So you can see
Oh, what’s going on
Yeah, what’s going on
You tell me what’s going on
I’ll tell you you what’s going on

Right on, baby
Right on
