What we need is Love!

Until the philosophy which holds one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there is no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Is a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be pursued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywhere is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of war

And until that day, the African continent
Will not know peace, we Africans will fight
We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory

We don't need no more trouble;
What we need is love, now. What we need is love!
We don't need, Oh, we don't need no more trouble!
We don't need, no - we don't need no more trouble!
We don't need - no, brothers and sisters ... No more trouble!

We don't need no trouble; we don't need no trouble!
We don't need no trouble!
What we need is love!
