This is a very serious message so all of you please listen.

There are some people living in this world
They have no food to eat
They have no place to go
But we all are God's children
We've got to learn to love one another
Just remember, they could be us
Remember, we all are brothers

I'm not trying to darken up your day
But help others in need
And show them there's a better way

This one's for the children
The children of the world
This one's for the children
May God keep them in his throne

(Ooh)
Many people are happy
And many people are sad
Some people have many things
That others can only wish they had
So for the sake of the children
Show them love's the only way to go
'Cause they are tomorrow, and people, they've got to know

I'm not trying to darken up your day
But help others in need
And show them there's a better way

This one's for the children(ah)
The children of the world(ah)
This one's for the children(ah)
May God keep them in his throne(ah)

This one's for the children(ah)
The children of the world(ah)
This one's for the children(ah)
May God keep them in his throne(ah)

(This one's for the chldren)
Only for the children
(This one's for the children)
The children of the world
(This one's for the children)
Only for the children
(This one's for the children)
The children of the world

Many people are happy
Many people are sad
This one's for the children of the world
The children of the world

    This is one of my NK favs. This song is about the different people in the world, and how some take for granted what we have when there are others doing without.
