    Lyrics

    chorus

    People killin' people dyin'
    Children hurtin', I hear them cryin'
    Can you practice what you preachin'?
    Would you turn the other cheek again?
    Mama, mama, mama, tell us what the hell is goin' on
    Can we all just get along?
    Father, father, father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    Cause people got me, got me
    Questioning
    (Where's the love)


    verse 1

    Yo what's going on with the world, momma
    (Where's the love)
    Yo people living like they ain't got no mommas
    (Where's the love)
    I think they all distracted by the drama and
    Attracted to the trauma, mamma
    (Where's the love)
    I think they don't understand the concept or
    The meaning of karma
    (Where's the love)
    [Verse 2: Diddy]
    Overseas, yeah they trying to stop terrorism
    (Where's the love)
    Over here on the streets the police shoot
    The people put the bullets in 'em
    (Where's the love)
    But if you only got love for your own race
    (Where's the love)
    Then you're gonna leave space for others to discriminate
    (Where's the love)


    verse 2

    And to discriminate only generates hate
    And when you hate then you're bound to get irate
    Madness is what you demonstrate
    And that's exactly how hate works and operates
    Man, we gotta set it straight
    Take control of your mind and just meditate
    And let your soul just gravitate
    To the love, so the whole world celebrate it


    chorus

    People killin' people dyin'
    Children hurtin', I hear them cryin'
    Can you practice what you preachin'?
    Would you turn the other cheek again?
    Mama, mama, mama, tell us what the hell is goin' on
    Can we all just get along?
    Father, Father, Father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    Cause people got me, got me questioning
    (Where's the love)


    verse 3

    It just ain't the same, always in change
    (Where's the love)
    New days are strange, is the world insane?
    (Where's the love)
    Nation droppin' bombs killing our little ones
    (Where's the love)
    Ongoing suffering as the youth die young
    (Where's the love)


    verse 4

    Where's the love when a child gets murdered
    Or a cop gets knocked down
    Black lives not now
    Everybody matter to me
    All races, y'all don't like what I'm sayin'? Haterade, tall cases
    Everybody hate somebody
    Guess we all racist
    Black Eyed Peas do a song about love and y'all hate this
    All these protest with different colored faces
    We was all born with a heart
    Why we gotta chase it?
    And every time I look around


    verse 5

    Every time I look up, every time I look down
    No one's on a common ground
    (Where's the love)
    And if you never speak truth then you never know how love sounds
    (Where's the love)
    And if you never know love then you never know God, wow
    (Where's the love)
    Where's the love y'all? I don't, I don't know
    Where's the truth y'all? I don't know


    verse 6

    People killin' people dyin'
    Children hurtin', I hear them cryin'
    Can you practice what you preach?
    Would you turn the other cheek?
    Father, Father, Father help us
    Send some guidance from above
    Cause people got me, got me questioning
    (Where's the love)


    interlude

    Love is the key
    (Where's the love)
    Love is the answer
    (Where's the love)
    Love is the solution
    (Where's the love)
    They don't want us to love
    (Where's the love)
    Love is powerful
    (Where's the love)


    verse 7

    My mama asked me why I never vote never vote
    Cause police men want me dead and gone dead and gone
    That election looking like a joke such a joke
    And the weed man still sellin' dope
    Somebody gotta give these niggas hope give us hope
    All he ever wanted was a smoke oh my gosh
    Said he can't breathe with his hands in the air
    Layin' on the ground died from a choke


    verse 8

    I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders
    As I'm gettin' older y'all people gets colder
    Most of us only care about money makin'
    Selfishness got us followin' the wrong direction
    Wrong information was shown by the media
    Negative images is the main criteria
    Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
    Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinemas
    What happened to the love and the values of humanity?
    (Where's the love)
    What happened to the love and the fairness and equality?
    (Where's the love)
    Instead of spreading love we're spreading animosity
    (Where's the love)
    Lack of understanding leading us away from unity
    (Where's the love)
