  • Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
    Why can't we live together
    Tell me why, tell me why
    Why can't we live together

    Everybody wants to live together
    Why can't we be together

    No more war, no more war, no more war
    Just a little peace
    No more war, no more war
    All we want is some peace in this world

    Everybody wants to live together
    Why can't we be together

    No matter, no matter what color
    You are still my brother
    I said no matter, no matter what color
    You are still my brother

    Everybody wants to live together
    Why can't we be together

    Everybody wants to live
    Everybody's got to be together

    Everybody wants to live
    Everybody's going to be together

    Everybody's got to be together
    Everybody wants to be together

    I said no matter, no matter what color
    You're still my brother
    I said no matter, no matter what color
    You're still my brother

    Everybody wants to live together
    Why can't we be together

    Gotta live together
    Together Writer/s: Timmy Thomas
