    Partical lyrics to Marvin Gayes Song.

    What's Going on ??


    Mother, mother
    There's too many of you crying
    Brother, brother, brother
    There's far too many of you dying
    Drugs is not the answer
    You know we've got to find a way
    To bring some lovin' here today - Ya

    Father, father
    We do need to escalate
    Together is the only way
    Mother needs you , Our babies need you
    You see, War is not the answer
    For only love can conquer self hate
    You know we've got to find a way
    To bring some lovin' here today


    Whats more important and what can we do
    to help each other, Arguing about stuff
    that just don't matter
    Haiti is proof of that..........
    Don't punish me with brutality
    Talk to me, so we 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.............. Listen
    Right on.............. Listen

    Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
    Oh, but who are they to judge us
    Simply because our partners are gone
    When do we stop competing and get the Full completion
    Oh, you know we've got to find a way
    To bring some understanding here today
    Oh

    Ladies
    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
    Right on baby
    Right on baby


    ~~~ This song came to mind as I was browsing. Even with our eccentric brothers and sisters they can give plenty. With all the things going on in the world that effects us all in so many different ways. Yet, We still can't simply get along.

    Love is just as powerful and is one tool that can be used to get back on track.

    For one day, LISTEN intensively to each other !!!

    Who ever is crying out to be heard, Why can't we simply hear them ??

    If we keep beating each other up then, Don't get mad when others do it.


    Peace
