Jeannie C. Riley – Children lyrics

Children go run and jump and play you'll be men and women some day
Then you'll have to leave your world of make believe now children
Young carefree children
Children need someone to understand children need someone to hold their hands yeah
To cheer you when you're sad to spank you when you're bad
Now children haughty naughty children

Ride goes before destruction the Holy Spirit goes before the fall
Don't you know that we're all children and it's all for one and one for all
Oh children call each other names children playing grown up games
And the thing that's really sad we lose the faith we had
When we were children loud proud children
Were children clowns proud children

Children who think that they are grown children with children of their own
From the cradle to the grave why must we all behave like children
Lost lonely children
