​What's The World Coming To

This song is by The Cats and appears on the album Cats As Cats Can (1967).

Original video
What is the world coming to?
What is the world coming to?
Just look around and tell me that you're happy with the time
Baby, what is the world coming to?

Stand on any street when the day is done
And the workers are going home
All sick and tired and afraid to move
They live and die by the noon day sun

Oh, oh, my people don't know
What this living is all about
And oh, oh, it hurts me so
So I've just got to get it out

Get it out, scream and shout!

What is the world coming to?
What is the world coming to?
Just look around and tell me that you're happy with the time
Baby, what is the world coming to?

People of the world should all unite
Like I heard somebody say before
Why has everybody got to fight
Just to get what they're looking for?

Oh, oh, the misery shows
But tell me what it's all about
Oh, oh, seems nobody knows
So I've just got to get it out

Get it out, scream and shout!

What is the world coming to?
What is the world coming to?
Just look around and tell me that you're happy with the time
Baby, what is the world coming to?

Oh, baby

What is the world coming to?
Won't someone tell me
What is the world coming to?
