LET THE CHILDREN KNOW

 

 

SOMEWHERE IN THE NIGHT
A CHILD IS ASKING WHY
WHY IN THIS CRAZY WORLD
DO SO MANY HAVE TO DIE
AND WHAT DO WE
KEEP FIGHTING FOR
WHEN WE ALL KNOW THAT
NO ONE WINS IN WAR

(CHORUS)

WE'VE GOT TO SHOW THE CHILDREN
HOW TO LOVE AND UNDERSTAND
WE'VE GOT TO SHOW THE CHILDREN
CAUSE THEY HOLD THE KEY
TO A BETTER LAND

WELL KNOW THE TIME
TO LET THEM KNOW THE
FUTURE'S IN THEIR HANDS
LET THEM KNOW WE TRIED
OUR BEST, AND THOUGH WE
MAY HAVE GOT IT WRONG
ALL THAT WE MADE WEAK
THEY MUST NOW MAKE STRONG

(CHORUS)

LET THE CHILDREN KNOW
LET THE CHILDREN KNOW

TEACH THEM TO RESPECT LIFE
AND TO END IT IS A SIN
TEACH THEM NOT TO
JUDGE SOMEONE BY THE
COLOUR OF THEIR SKIN
AND WHEN THEY FINALLY UNDERSTAND
AND LOVE THEIR FELLOW MEN
THEN AND ONLY THEN
CAN A NEW WORLD BEGIN

(CHORUS)

LET THE CHILDREN KNOW

(REPEAT TILL FADE)
