“For Pete’s Sake” Lyrics

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 generation)
In this lovin’ time (In this lovin’ 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 generation)
In this lovin’ time (In this lovin’ 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

We gotta be free
Gotta be free (Love is understanding)
(In this generation) In this generation
Love is understanding we gotta be free (In this generation)
Gotta be free (In this generation)
Gotta be free (In this generation)
Gotta be free

Micky: Mr. Peter Tork!
