Love And Happiness Lyrics

by John Mellencamp

Well, we're droppin' our bombs in the Southern Hemisphere
And people are starving that live right here
And they're tearing down walls in the name of peace
And they're killing each other in the Middle East

But love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness
Oh yeah, oh yeah

They raise the price of oil and they censor our mouths
If you are a young couple today forget buying a house
And we wage or wars in the neighborhoods
We kill the young to feed the old and man that ain't no good

But love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness
Oh yeah

So, if you sell arms or you run dope
You got respect and you got hope
But the rest of us die on your battle fields
With wounds that fester and bleed but never heal

Yeah and love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness
Oh yeah, oh yeah

And love and happiness
Yeah, love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness, oh yeah
A little love and happiness, oh yeah
Love and happiness, oh yeah
A little love and happiness, oh yeah
