“Right On”Marvin Gaye "What's Going On" high res cover art

Hey baby
That’s alright people
I know that’s alright
Oh, when we love each other
I know that’s alright
Oh feel it, feel it
Oh everybody feel it
God knows that’s alright, yes
Some of us were born
With money to spend
Some of us were born
For races to win
Some of us are aware
That it’s good for us to care
Some of us feel the icy wind
Of poverty blowing in the air
For those of us who simply like to socialize
For those of us who tend the sick
And heed the people’s cries
Let me say to you
Right on!
Right on, feel it
And I say, Right on
Honey right on
For those of us who live
Where peace is craved
For those of us who live,
Where hatred is enslaved, alright
For those of us who live a life
Yea, surrounded by good fortune and wealth

Those of us who live a life
Hey, hey, hey enjoying ourselves
For those of us who got drowned
In the sea of happiness
For the soul that takes pride in his God
And himself and everything else
Love
That’s all it is
We need love
That’s all it is
Oh, oh
Love, love
Love’s the thing
Love, love, love, love
Sweet love, love
Wonderful love
Ah, true love, love
Love for your brother and love,
Love, for God
Pure love
Love can conquer hate every time
Give out some love and you’ll find
Peace sublime
And my darling, one more thing
If you let me, I will take you
To live where love is King
Ah, baby
That’s alright
Alright

-Marvin Gaye, 1972
