"Medley II (Live at the London Palladium, 1977)"

[Intro]
Woo, thank you, y'all, beautiful

Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)

[Verse 1]
Rockets, moon shots
Spend it on, baby, the have-nots
Money, we make it
'Fore we see it, you take it

[Chorus]
Oh, make me wanna holler
The way they do my life
Makes me wanna holler
The way they do my life
This ain't livin', This ain't livin'
No, no baby, this ain't livin'
No, no, no, oh

[Verse 2]
Crime is increasing
Trigger happy policing
Panic is spreading
God knows where we're heading, woo

[Chorus]
Woo, makes me wanna holler
Throw up both my hands
Oh, makes me wanna holler
Throw up both my hands

[Outro]
Hey baby, singing about the inner city blues, yeah
Oh darling, ow
Huh, baby, singing, singing about inner city blues, woo
Ladies and gentlemen, we want to sing for you now a few excerpts from our What's Going On album
We sincerely hope that you hear a few that you love
Bless you, baby

God Is Love

[Verse 1]
Don't go and talk about my father
God is my friend (Jesus is my friend)
He made this world for us to live in, and gave us everything
And all He asks of us, oh, is we give each other love

[Verse 2]
Oh baby, don't go and talk about my father
God is my friend (Jesus is my friend)
When we call in Him for mercy
He'll be merciful, my friend
All He asks of us, is we give each other love, oh baby

What's Going On

[Verse 1]
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
Father, father
We don't need to escalate
War is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate, baby
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some understandin' here today, good God

[Pre-Chorus]
Picket lines (Sister), picket signs (Sister)
Don't punish me (Sister) with brutality (Sister)
Talk to me (Sister), so you can see (Sister)

[Chorus]
What's going on (What's going on)
What's going on (What's going on)
What's going on (What's going on)
What's going on (What's going on)
OW!

[Outro]
I know, gonna give it away, ow
You got to have the love, baby, to make it work, you know, ow
Woo
But everything's gonna be cool
Wait, wait a minute, there's another thing I wanna...

Save The Children

[Intro]
I just want to ask a question
Who really cares?

[Verse]
There'll come a time, when the world won't be singin'
Flowers won't grow, oh no, baby, bells won't be ringin'
Who really cares?
Who is willing to try, yes darling
To save a world that's destined to die?
When I look at the world, oh, it fills me with sorrow
Children today, are they gonna suffer, suffer tomorrow?
Oh, what a shame, such a bad way to live
Ah, who is to blame when we can't stop livin'?

[Outro]
Oh, live for life, live for life
But let live everybody
Live life for the children
For the children
Oh baby, please, everybody save the babies
Oh please, save the babies
If you want love, you've got to love
Save the children, oh, oh
Save all the beautiful babies
Save the babies
Oh, save the children
Oh, oh, love the children

Thank you
Thank you, ladies and gentlemen
