"Do Ya Love" as written by Michael Franti and Carl Rogers Young....
One, two, three four
Yoo hoo hoo, ah
Another morning has come and the sun is high
But I know that today is the day that I might cry
Because I know you're going
And I know you're leaving
To somewhere you hope to find the peace of mind you're seeking

In the back of a greyhound bus, it'll take you far
In the back of a greyhound bus you can be who you are

So I say
La-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la La
I got love for you
I got love for you

So I'll be waiting my dear
Waiting right here
I'll be waiting my dear
Waiting right here
I'll be waiting my dear
Waiting right here
For you, you

I remember the time back when we was home
In and out up and down in this life what a crazy road
It's been a long time that I shoulda said what I tell you now
That I got faith in you
And I believe in you
So I say

In the dark of the night in the hotel when you're alone
In the middle of the city where nobody cares to know
On the top of the town in the glimmer of the shining lights
You just shine on now
You just shine on now

And we say
La-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la la
I got love for you
I got love for you

And we say
La-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la la
I got love for you
I got love for you

So come on, come on, won't you come on
Come on, come on, won't you come on
Come on, come on, won't you come on home
So come on, come on, won't you come on
Come on, come on, won't you come on
Come on, come on, won't you come on home, come on home
I'll be waiting my dear
Waiting right here
I'll be waiting my dear
Waiting right here
I'll be waiting my dear
Waiting right here
Waiting my dear
Waiting right here

In the back of a greyhound bus, it'll take you far
In the back of a greyhound bus you can be who you are

So I say
La-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la-la-la la La
I got love for you
Love for you
And I say
La-la-la la-la-la La-la-la La-la-la La La
I got love for you
Love for you

And I say come on, come on, won't you come on
Come on, come on, won't you come on
Come on, come on, won't you come on
Come on, come on, won't you come on home
Won't you come on home (waiting right here)
Won't you come on home (waiting right here)
won't you come on home (waiting right here)
Waiting right here

    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.
