Donovan – Children Of The World lyrics

Some of us believe in communism,
Some of us believe in capitalism,
Some of us believe in spiritualism,
Some of us believe in materialism
Some mothers believe in heavy dandy,
Some fathers believe in understanding.
Some of us believe in total freedom,
Some of us believe in laying the rules on.
But the children believe in friends,
For the children of the world,
Every boy and girl,
All they'll know is what we teach 'em,
Most of us fail when we try to reach 'em
For the children believe in having friends
Children believe in friends,
Children believe in having friends
Children believe in friends.
Some of us believe in Hare Krishna,
Some of us believe in Jesus Saves Ya,
Some of us believe in oblivion,
Some of us believe in David Niven.
Some of us believe in fighting our mate,
Some of us believe in the brotherhood state.
Some of us believe in analysing,
Some of us believe in humanising.
For the children of the world,
Every boy and girl,
All they'll know is what we teach 'em,
Most of us fail when we try to reach 'em
For the children believe in having friends
Children believe in friends,
Children believe in having friends
Children believe in friends.
But the children believe in friends,
For the children of the world,
Every boy and girl,
All they'll know is what we teach 'em,
Most of us fail when we try to reach 'em
For the children believe in having friends
Children believe in friends,
Children believe in having friends
Children believe in friends.
Children believe in friends.
Children believe in friends...
