Children
Go and run and jump and play
You'll be
Men and women someday
Then you'll have to leave
Your world of make believe
Now children

Young (children)
Carefree (children)
Children

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 (children)
Naughty (children)
Children

Pride goes before destruction
A holy spirit goes before a fall
Don't you know that we're all children
And it's all for one and one for all mmm

Children (children)
Call each other names
Children
Playing grown-up games
And the things that's really sad
We lose the faith we had
When we were children

Loud (children)
Proud (children)
Children

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 (na na na na na na na na na na na na)

Lost (children)
Lonely (children)
Children

Lost
Lonely
Children
Young
Carefree
Children
Growing
Young
Children
Lost
Lonely
Children
