For Petes Sake - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Peter Tork & Joseph Richards
Love is understanding,
Don't you know that this is true?
Love is understanding,
It's in everything we do.
In this generation,
In this loving time,
In this generation,
We will make the world shine.
We were born to love one another,
This is something we all need,
We were born to love one another,
We must be what we're going to be,
And what we have to be is free.
In this generation,
In this loving time,
In this generation,
We will make the world shine.
We were born to love one another,
This is something we all need,
We were born to love one another,
We must be what we're going to be,
And what we have to be is free.
Love is understanding, (
In this generation)
We gotta be free,
Love is understanding, (
In this generation)
We gotta be free,
In this generation, (
In this generation)
Love is understanding,
We gotta be free, (
In this generation)
We gotta be free,
We gotta be free,
We gotta be free.(fade out)
