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 
Ya

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 

 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
Ya, 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 because our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today 
Oh

 Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality 
Talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on 
Uh
