For What It’s Worth Lyrics – Jeffrey Osborne

Oh I’m gon’ tell you ’bout something
Something that’s going right on
There’s something happening here
what it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I’ve got to beware

I think it’s time to stop
Chilled and what’s that sound?
Everybody look what’s going down
Everybody take a good look
Oooh, oh yeah

There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Let me tell you there’s young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

You better stop
Chilled and what’s that sound?
Everybody look what’s going down
Going down

Oh, what a
[?]
Say, there’s thousands of people in the streets
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, “hooray for our side”

Oh, it’s time, stop
Chilled and what’s that sound?
Everybody look what’s going down?

What it is, what it is, what it is, what it is, y’all
Oh, let me tell you now

Paranoia strikes deep (paranoia strikes deep)
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
You step out of line, the men comes and they’ll take you away

We better stop
Chilled, what’s that sound?
Everybody look what’s going down?
Stop, chilled, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, chilled, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

Come on, chill
take a little step back
And look around
Hey, seeing what’s going down?
(Stop! What’s that sound?)
You better look around
Stop!
Chill, what’s that sound?

Everybody wants to be right
Nobody wants to be wrong
There’s a man with a gun over there
Tell me what’s going on

You better stop
Chilled and what’s that sound?
Everybody take a good look
A good look
A good look
Ahhh…
