Intro:
Come let us sing a song for the children
Cause babylon nuh care about the children

Chorus 1:
I see dem doing in dem doing all dem doing
Dem nuh care about the children - children
Dem only sit down and mash up the society
And nothing for the children - children - the children
Righteousness and love we hafi give it to the children - the children
A no hatred a no grudge could never give it to the children - the children

Verse 1:
Come let us pave a way for the children
So that they all can live
Tired fi see dem outa road deh ya a juggle
And me see you teach dem peer negative
Now tell me what have you done to protect dem
I'm talking you mr. big investment
Instead a you bring dem to the top of the mountain
A peer pit you a dig

Chorus 2:
I see dem doing in dem doing all dem doing
Dem nuh care about the children - children
Dem only sit down and mash up the society
And nothing for the children - children - the children

Bridge:
I know that they depending on you
Open your heart and let jah through

Verse 2:
To every mother and every father I and I say bless up
I know the feeling what it bring to see your children dress up
Teach dem the right nuh make dem mind get mess up
Every ting it will be fine you don't have to stress up
Tell your son put down the gun him a tek up
Counsel him show him the gun ting a nuh something fi pet up
Babylon a nuff a jah jah children unno set up
But dis ya generation you never ever go wreck up

Chorus 1

Bridge

Verse 3:
Help fi bring dem education gi dem all what dem want
Gi dem the mind fi handle the matter and teach dem how fi chant
Become a musician like I and even ram a few dance
I know that they can no badda tell me dem can't
I wish that they would never feel lonely
Just gi dem a home and let the children feel homely
One for little john, claudette and one for tony
Yes dem a the future and jah jah have shown me

Chorus 1
