Love sign, love sign (Get up...)
Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun
(Get up)

If U're sick of evil knockin' on ur door (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign once and 4evermore (2 signs of the time)
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun
(Time is passing, passing the time)

N a chariot of red and gold
The cool fuzzy voice said, "Come save ur soul"
B4 the fear of rejection reared its head
He stood b4 the masses and calmly said...

If U're sick of evil knockin' on ur door (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign once and 4evermore (2 signs of the time)
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun
(Time is passing, passing the time)

N the day of where and why we all belong
Don't nobody wanna hear a silly love song
And if they did then we would sing it on the news
Why U aimin' ur gun at me and I'm aimin' back at U?

If U're sick of evil knockin' on ur door (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign once and 4evermore (2 signs of the time)
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun
(Time is passing, passing the time)

Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun (Get up)
Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun (Get up)
Aye yeah

If U only had 1 year left 2 live (Get up)
What good is the time U spend if U got no love 2 give? (Get up)
Let's all get up off the front and find a cause 2 back
Then we can teach the babies replications of the act, of the act

If U're sick of evil knockin' on ur door
Throw up the love sign once and 4evermore
(Then eve... everybody love) (2 signs of the time)
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun
(We can a little fun) (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun
(Everybody, oh yeah) (Time is passing, passing the time)

If U're sick of evil knockin' on ur door (Oh yeah) (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign once and 4evermore (Oh...) (2 signs of the time)
If U'd rather make love and have a little fun
(Make a little love now) (Aye yeah)
Throw up the love sign everybody and not the gun
(Then make love instead of guns, oh) (Time is passing, passing the time)

Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun
Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun
Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun (Aye yeah)
Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun

Show us the love sign, we want the love sign (Get up)
Show us the love sign (Get up)
Show us the love sign, we want the love sign (Signs of the time) (Get up)
Show us the love sign (2 signs of the time) (Get up)
Love sign (Pop pop pop go the pistol, bang bang bang go the gun) {repeat}
(The love sign) (Get up) {repeat}
