Willie Hutch - 'Brother's Gonna Work It Out' Lyrics


Album: The Mack Soundtrack



"You really don't understand do you?
Hey man don't you realize in order for us to make this thing work man we've got to get rid of the pimps and the pushers and the prostitutes and then start all over again clean."

"Yeah but nobody's pushing me anywhere ok. I mean not you, not the cops, nobody man. I mean you wanna get rid of the pushers I'll help you. But don't send your people left to me."

"Oh come on John, can't you see that we can't get rid of one without getting rid of the other. We gotta come down on both of them at the same time in order for this whole thing to work for the people."

"Yeah but nobody's closing me out of my business."

Ooooh ooooooooh eee ooooh ooooh
Ooooh
Ooooh
We brothers gonna work it out
We brothers gonna work it out

Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Gonna get it now

Now don't give him no peace hun' if you don't mean it in your heart
United we can get over
Yet we're still apart
Cos' each day demands respect
And to give an equal share
And until you give it him back there'll be no peace

Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it all out (brother's gonna work it out)
Oh we must all join hands
We can march across the strand in peace
(Brother's gonna work it out)
No joy where that brother's standing unduly too long

Instead of brother turning on sister
Sister turning on brother
Now how you gonna get it together being against one another?
Shoot ups, live ups, all high
Till your world is turned to stone
How you can you deal with the truth
When reality's all gone?

Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it all out (brother's gonna work it out)
All brothers sing
Stop the pimps, the hustler and the pusher man as fast you can
Open your ears and eyes to the fact
Of what's truly holding you back

Ooooh
Brother need your help
Now can't you see?
Always got to have it
Oh right on
Ohhhh yeah

Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
I hope that you will so
All the answers to your problems you can find
Yet you stay locked in alley streets
Get the kids to your mind
Brother to win your brother's trust
The peace vibration must
Stop you robbing, stealing, killing, cheating and loving

Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Oh brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it all out (brother's gonna work it out)
Brother's gonna work it (brother's gonna work it out)
