The Jamaicans With Tommy McCook – Peace And Love
The Jamaicans With Tommy McCook Peace And Love (1968, Vinyl)

The song "Peace and Love" (Treasure Isle Records # TI-7037) is a collaboration between The Jamaicans (a rocksteady group formed in 1966 in Jamaica) and Tommy McCook (reggae artist, born 3 March 1927, La Habana, Ciudad de La Habana, Cuba, died 5 May 1998, Atlanta, Georgia, USA).

It took a strong anti-war position, saying that the leaders were focused on war, but that the "people of the world" want "love peace and love". It pleaded with the government: "don't send my brothers to Vietnam", and looked at the impact on families: "don't let...mothers mourn, don't let my father know the pain". Released in Kingston, Jamaica.

Vietnam War Song Project
The leaders of the war study war,
but we want love, peace and love,
they look around the war
Looking for love, we no war,
oh no war.

Don't send my brothers to Vietnam,
don't let my mother mourn no more,
don't let my father know
The pain that has to come,
don't want to study war no more.

The leaders of the world study war
We want love peace and love,
The people of the world
Looking for love,
don't want no war, oh no war

Don't send my brothers to Vietnam,
don't let our mothers mourn no more,
don't let my father know
The pain that has to come,
don't want to study war no more,
no more
