Jewel – What’s Going On Lyrics

Jewel What’s Going On

Mother, mother
There’s far 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, ooh

Father, father
We know that we don’t need, we don’t need to escalate
‘Cause war is not the answer
‘Cause only love, only love, only love can conquer hate
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some loving here today, ooh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
C’mon now, talk to me
Can’t you see what’s going on?
And tell me what’s going on, and tell me what’s going on
Can’t you tell me, tell me what’s going on?

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

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality ’cause that man can’t breathe
C’mon, just talk to me
Can’t you see?
What’s going on, and tell me what’s going on
Someone tell me what’s going on
Can’t we see, can’t we see what’s going on? Ooh
