"Fussing And Fighting" as written by and Curtis Mayfield....
Why's this fussing and a-fighting?
I want to know, Lord, I want to know
Why's this bumping and a-boring?
I want to know, Lord, I want to know now

We should really love each other (love each other)
In peace and harmony (peace and harmony), ooh
Instead, we're fussing and fighting (fussing and fighting)
And them workin' iniquity (...iniquity)

Why's this fussing and a-fighting?
I want to know, Lord, I want to know (...know), I want to know now
Why's this cheating and backbiting?
(I want to know...) I want to know, oh, Lord, I want to know now

(Stop your fussing and fighting, stop your fussing and fighting)
(Stop your fussing and fighting, stop your fussing and fighting)
We should really love each other (love each other)
In peace and harmony (peace and harmony)
Instead, instead, we're fussing and fighting (fussing and fighting)
Like we ain't supposed to be (...supposed to be), tell me why

Why's this fussing and a-fighting?
I want to know, Lord, I want to know, someone, please
Why's this (...bumping and...) bumping and boring?
(I wanna...) I want to know (...I want to know), Lord, tell me now ...
