Where do we go from here?
What shall we do next? What is our next move?
The saying is often used in a political context.
This catch phrase was popularized through the US wartime song Where Do We Go From Here
? (1917) with lyrics by Percy Wenrich (1887-1952) and music by Howard Johnson (1887-1952). The tune, which you can listen to here
, was popular shortly following America's entry into WWI.
There is another more romantic song (style soul/R & B
) which has exactly the same title Where Do We Go From Here
? (album As I Am
, 2007) and which is sung by Alicia Keys
(born Alicia Augello-Cook; January 25, 1981), who is an American R&B/soul singer-songwriter, composer, record producer, pianist, and actress.
