Hate and war The only things we got today An' if I close my eyes They will not go away You have to deal with it It is the currency Hate, hate, hate, the hate of a nation A million miles from home And get war from the junkies Who don't like my form I'm gonna stay in the city Even when the house fall down I don't dream of a holiday When hate an' war come around Hate and war The only things we got today Hate and war The only things
I have the will to survive I cheat if I can't win If someone locks me out I kick my way back in An' if I get aggression I give 'em two times back Every day it's just the same With hate an' war on my back
Hate and war, I hate all the English, man Hate and war, they're just as bad as wops Hate and war, I hate all the politeness Hate and war, I hate all the cops Hate and war, I want to walk down any street Hate and war, looking like a creep Hate and war, I don't care if I get beat up Hate and war, by any rotten Greek
Holland-Dozier-Holland originally wrote "Where Did Our Love Go" with The Marvelettes in mind, but they turned it down. Marvelettes lead singer Gladys Horton sang in a lower key than Diana Ross, so when The Supremes came to record the tune, Ross was forced to sing in a lower, breathier style than she was used to.
