(As recorded by Marvin Gaye)
AL CLEVELAND
MARVIN GAYE
RENAULDO BENSON

Mother, mother there's too many of you cryin' 
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dyin'
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here to stay, 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, oh
What's going on, ah.

Brother what's happening
How ya' doing
What's happening man
Hey man what's your name
My man say everything is everything
Got to go all the way brother
Yeah baby what's your name
Father, father everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long, oh
You know that we've got to find a way
Bring some understanding here today, oh, oh, oh.

Picket lines and picket signs,
Don't punish me with brutality
Come on talk to me so you can see
What's going on, yeah
What's going on
Tell me what's going on
I tell you what's going on, oh.

Right on hey what's happening
Say daddy what's happening
Just groovin' you know
Groove on hee hee hee
I feel like summertime
Right on, brother yeah
Can we take it home that's right
Little brother that's right
Let's go all the way
Get the football that's cool
Ah ha ha ha ha let's cool off,
Let's cool off again
Get it let's go baby.
