Children, children, take time to know them
love them, teach them, for they are the one's who'll make a brighter day
School is the place they must go to prepare for tomorrow
What lies ahead no one knows, it could be joy or sorrow
They don't realize that today is only the start of
making plans for the things they will be at the heart of
Teach them to care about much more than themselves,
'cause we help ourselves when we help someone else

Children, children
innocent faces, different cultures and different races
a smile is a language they can all understand
the promise of peace is found in their little hands
Teach them to care about much more than themselves
'cause we help ourselves when we help someone else

Somewhere there's a child with no place to sleep
His stomach is empty while he lives in the street
Why is it so hard for us to understand
We'd be better off it someone would give him a hand
We all must learn to care for more than ourselves
'cause we help ourselves when we help someone else

Let the children express their feelings
Listen when they tell you what they have on their minds
Being a child is the shortest time of your life
That's why is should be the happiest time of your life
We all must learn to care for more than ourselves
'cause we help ourselves when we help someone else

Children, let's save the children
ooh
