Child isn't born with a prejudiced mind
He only learns what he sees
Or what he's taught to do

Think about your children, mother
Help all mankind
Don't let the weight of hate
Weigh the world down

Here we are in this world together
We were meant to live with each other
Tell the child the truth, it's your own son
And everybody know about freedom

(Think about your children, think think
Let them love one another
Got a long way to go
Really gotta get there fast

It a shamed it had to be
But we can't change the past
Think about your children, mother
Save all mankind
Don't let the weight of hate
Weigh the world down

(Think about the children)
I can see a good day a-comin'
More of love and no time for hating
There will be no need for debating
And everybody know about freedom

Here we are in this world together
We were meant to live with each other
Tell the child the truth, it's your own son
And everybody know about freedom

(Think about your children, think think)
Help men love one another
(Think about the children, think think)
Help them love one another
(Think about the children, think think)

I can see a good day a-comin'
More of love and no time for hating
There will be no need for debating
And everybody know about freedom
(Fade)
