Life is confusing. No matter how far into it you are you’re always racing against the clock trying to find a purpose before your time’s up, that’s what this song is all about. But, somewher i also believe that Linda wants to tell something about “Male domination”.. refer to these lines

“I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this
Brotherhood of man
For whatever that means.”

and later in the song, she also says says

“And I pray, oh my God do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution”

This album sold 6 million copies worldwide, won the Best song at the Bay Area Music awards, Linda Perry(vocalist) won Best Female Vocalist…. Need i say anything more about this song or this album.

The title of this song “What’s up” is not in the lyrics. The Chorus says “What’s going on”, but as “What’s going on” was also the title of a 1971 Marvin Gaye R&B Classic, they always called this song “Whats up”

4 Non Blondes – What’s up / What’s Going on Guitar chords, lyrics, Meanings, Tabs

[A] [Bm] [D] [A] (2X)

[A]25 years of my life and still,
[Bm]Tryin’ to to get up that great big hill of [D]hope, for a desti[A]nation.
I [A]realized quickly when I knew I should ,
That the [Bm]world was made up of this brotherhood of [D]man,
For what[A]ever that means.

And so I [A]cry sometimes, when I’m lying in bed
Just to [Bm]get it all out, what’s in my head, then I,
I am [D]feeling, a little pe[A]culiar.

And so I [A]wake in the morning, and I step outside
And I [Bm]take a deep breath, and I get real high, and I,
[D]Scream from the top of my lungs, “What’s going [A]on?”

And I say, “[A]Hey yeah yeah hey, [Bm]hey yeah yeah.”
I [D]said, “Hey, what’s going [A]on?”
And I say, “[A]Hey yeah yeah hey, [Bm]hey yeah yeah.”

D A (A Bm D A) 2X

I [D]said, “Hey, what’s going [A]on?”

A Bm D A
And I [A]try, oh my God, do I [Bm]try, I try all the [D]time, in this [A]institution.
And I [A]pray, oh my God, do I [Bm]pray, I pray every single [D]day, For a revo[A]lution.

And so I [A]cry sometimes, when I’m lying in bed
Just to [Bm]get it all out, what’s in my head, then I,
I am [D]feeling, a little pe[A]culiar.

And so I [A]wake in the morning, and I step outside
And I [Bm]take a deep breath, and I get real high, and I,
[D]Scream from the top of my lungs, “What’s going [A]on?”

And I say, “[A]Hey yeah yeah hey, [Bm]hey yeah yeah.”
I [D]said, “Hey, what’s going [A]on?”
And I say, “[A]Hey yeah yeah hey, [Bm]hey yeah yeah.”
I [D]said, “Hey, what’s going [A]on?”

[A]25 years of my life and still,
[Bm]Tryin’ to to get up that great big hill of [D]hope, for a desti[A]nation.
