Peaceful World

Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea!
Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea!

Come on baby, take a ride with me
I'm up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be in a peaceful world

People know this world is a wreck
We're sick and tired of being politically correct
I see through it now, but I didn't at first
The hypocrites made it worse and worse

Lookin' down their noses at what people say
These are just words and words are okay
It's what you do and not what you say
If you're not part of the future, then get out of the way

Come on, baby, take a ride with me
I'm up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be in a peaceful world

Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea!

Racism lives in the U.S.A.
Get hip to what Martin Luther King had to say
I don't want my kids being brought up this way
Hatred to each other is not okay

Well, I'm not a preacher, just a singer, son
I can see more work to be done
It's what you do and not what you say
If you're not part of the future, then get out of the way

Come on baby, take a ride with me
I'm up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be in a peaceful world

So lay back the top and ride with me
I'm up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be in a peaceful world

No no no!

Ohh!

Money's good, work is okay
Looks like everything is rollin' our way
'Til you gotta look the devil in the eye
You know that bastard's one big lie

So be careful with your heart and what you love
Make sure that it was sent from above
It's what you do and not what you say
If you're not part of the future, then get out of the way

Come on baby, take a ride with me
I'm up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be in a peaceful world

So lay back the top and ride with me
I'm up from Indiana down to Tennessee
Everything is cool as can be in a peaceful world

Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea! Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea!
Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea! Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea!
Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea! Hey yea, hey yea, hey yea!
