Marvin Gaye: What's Going On???

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Ok, ready? I have these lyrics printed out three times. 1 is missing the -ing verbs. 2 is missing contractions. 3 has all the lyrics. Half the class gets 1, half gets 2 and they listen for their part. Then they try to piece it together. And to be nice, I hand out the full lyric sheet later. Promotes good teamwork, and the song has simple vocabulary and plus...it's Marvin Gaye so who can argue?

What's Going On
by Marvin Gaye


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, hey
Father, father, we don´t need to escalate
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

(CHORUS #1: )
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, ah, what´s going on
Ahhh....

Mother, mother, everybody thinks we´re wrong
Ah but who are they to judge us
Simply ´cos our hair is long
Ah you know we´ve got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today

(CHORUS #2:)
Picket lines and picket signs
Don´t punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
What´s going on, yeah what´s going on
Tell me what´s going on, I´ll tell you what´s going on

Ok, have fun!
