“What’s Up?” released by 4 Non Blondes

Twenty-five years I’m alive here still

Trying to get up that great big hill of hope

For a destination

 

I realized quickly when I knew I should

That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man

For whatever that means

 

And so I cry sometimes

When I’m lying in bed Just to get it all out

What’s in my head

And I, I am feeling a little peculiar.

 

And so I wake in the morning

And I step outside

And I take a deep breath and I get real high

And I scream from the top of my lungs

What’s going on?

 

And I say: HEY! yeah yeaaah, HEY yeah yea

I said hey, what’s going on?

 

And I say: HEY! yeah yeaaah, HEY yeah yea

I said hey, what’s going on?

 

ooh, ooh ooooooooooooooooh

ooh, ooh ooooooooooooooooh

 

and I try, oh my god do I try

I try all the time, in this institution

 

And I pray, oh my god do I pray

I pray all sanctity

For a revolution.

 

And so I cry sometimes

When I’m lying bed

Just to get it all out

What’s in my head

And I, I am feeling a little peculiar

 

And so I wake in the morning

And I step outside

And I take a deep breath and I get real high

And I scream from the top of my lungs

What’s going on?

 

And I say, hey hey hey hey

I said hey, what’s going on?

 

And I say, hey hey hey hey

I said hey, what’s going on?

 

And I say, hey hey hey hey

I said hey, what’s going on?

 

And I say, hey hey hey hey

I said hey, what’s going on?

 

ooh, ooh ooooooooooooooooh ooooooooooooooooh

 

Twenty-five years I’m alive here still

Trying to get up that great big hill of hope

for a destination
