"Do Ya Love" as written by Michael Franti and Carl Rogers Young....
So many times, people turn they backs to you
'cause they don't want to see, what's inside you
'cause lookin' inside of you
They might realize there's something inside of them
They might not want to find

But it ain't about who ya love (who ya love)
See it's all about do ya love (do ya love)

[Chorus]
Well well well well
Sunshine, and loveliness
Ain't nobody feeling no ugliness tonight
Ain't it fine like sippin' sweet Georgie wine
See I'm just chillin' with these friends of mine

I ain't tryin' a bother you
So why ya gotta bother me
What goes on in your bedroom ain't no mess to me
You say your God don't like my God
'cause you don't like my friends
But your friends tryin' to kill a man
And I don't understand

'cause it ain't about who ya love (who ya love)
See it's all about do ya love (do ya love)

[Chorus]

Ooh one two three
Say yeah say yeah feels so good to me
Oh! and ya one two three, say yeah, say yeah
Feels so good!

I say do it at home or on the street
With a drag queen don't matter to me
It ain't about sex or having degrees
Your pedigree don't matter to me
About who ya love (who ya love)
See it's all about do ya love (do ya love)

[Chorus]

    General CommentAgainst homophobia and being cool with homosexuality! Pretty straightforward but lovely michael Franti jubbly.

    The only line I don't understand is "but your friends tryin' to kill a man, and I don't understand"

    General Comment"but your friends tryin' to kill a man and I don't understand"

    I believe that whole verse is referring to the men and women killed in hate crimes.

    General CommentThis song is about a much broader collection of themes than just homophobia...In fact I would say the most direct thing hes hitting on is that there's no sense in loving and worshipping a God if you don't practice a loving life in the first place.

    But it's even broader than that. This song falls into his overarching philosophy which trascends (american) nationalism in search of global love and peace.
