"What's Going On"

What's Going On
Tell Me

People Dying
People Crying
Lord Help Us

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying

 Oh, brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying

That's Right

You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Oh my 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
Barricades, can't block our way.
Don't punish me with brutality

 Talk to me 
So you can see

(First Chorus)
Oh what's going on
What's going on
Yeah what's going on
Ahh what's going on

 What's going on in a world filled with pain 
Where's the love for which we pray
What's going on
When our children can't play
Homeless can't eat
There's got to be a better way
What's going on
When we politically blind
Can't see the signs of endangered times
What's going on

Ah tell me
What's going on in the world today
I'd rather be dead
Than turn my head away
We gotta first world vision to ???? to lift our
 Hands in the air  and cry for a switch  

Father, father
Father help us, come on
Everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Together we can all be strong
 United we stand, United we fall 
Oh you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Barricades can't block our way
Don't punish me with brutality
 Baby talk to me 
So you can see

(Second Chorus)
Yeah, what's going on
Hey, what's going on
Somebody tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's goin' on -uh

What's going on 'cross seas
Every minute a child dies by this disease
In record numbers indeed
Got momma's crying out please
My baby hold on
My child ain't done nothing wrong
Still I want to hollar
Ask them why they don't bother
Oh no, oh no
Make me turn to my father
And ask him why they all got a trapped soul

I can feel what was bothering Marvin
Why his words forever remain
 Dealing with these modern day problems 
'Cause of ignorance surrounding me and my constituents
Too many infected
Too many lives diminishing
 Nobody say Protestants, Jews, Blacks, and Whites, Latino's and Asians 
Pray together
Less fight
We better unite
As genocide chemical war
And the rich and the poor
Know that God delivers a cure

It's a shame our reality is devastating
People praying for a cure
Dying while they're waiting
Ask the Lord for the comfort and strength to face it
All the kids with dreams
Won't get the chance to chase it
Makes me sad
Think about the lives they would've had
Think about the orphan babies got no moms and dads
How can we sit back and not try to make it right
We gotta come together
We gotta fight for life

Somebody tell me what's going on
(what's going on)
We got human beings using humans for bombs
But everyone wanna live
Don't nobody really want to die
You feeling me right I can't be watching people die
And watching people cry
Let me break it down for a minute
If there's enough room here for you and me
There's plenty of room for some humanity

Somebody tell me what's going on
(what's going on)

Qu'est Ce Qu'il Se Passe??
 Mère, Mère,
Vous êtes trop nombreuses à pleurer
Frère, frere, frère
Vous êtes bien trop nombreux à mourir
Vous savez qu'il faut que nous trouvions une solution
Pour apporter un peu d'amour ici aujourd'hui-Ouais
Père, Père
Nous n'avons pas besoin de monter ainsi en flèche
Tu vois, la guerre n'est pas une bonne solution
Seul l'amour peut triompher à la Haine
Tu sais que nous devons trouver une solution
Pour apporter de l'amour ici, aujourd'hui
Piquets de grève et pancarte de grève
Ne me punissez pas avec brutalité
Parlez moi, et vous pourrez voir
Ce qu'il se passe
Ce qu'il se passe
Ouais, ce qu'il se passe
Ah, en attendant...
Il est temps de donner un sens
Bravo, bébé
Père, Père, Ils pensent tous qu'on a tord
Oh mais qui sont-ils pour nous juger
Simplement parce que nos cheveux sont longs
Tu sais, nous avons besoin d'une solution
Pour amener la compréhension ici et aujourd'hui
Piquets de grève et pancartes de grève
Ne me punissez pas avec tant de brutalité
Parlez moi,
Et vous pourrez voir
Ce qu'il se passe
Ce qu'il se passe
Dis moi ce q'il se passe
Je te dirai ce qu'il se passe
Bravo bébé
Bravo bébé
