The kids
Im living my life for the kids
I hope see them when they're all grown up
Ill be so satisfied
The kids
Ive got to be strong for the kids
Be a good example
Straight or not
Show them how to survive
Listen to them laugh
Look at them playing
Listen to them sing
Look at them dance
Not a care in the world
Because they know I'll protect them
From any harm
From any fall
The kids
Gotta to make it better for the kids
Try to nourish them with confidence
To make it on their own
This crazy wonderful world
Sometimes it hard to understand
So I'll show them how to be a woman
Ill teach them how to be a man
Education is the key to their future
Teach to be respect each other too
Show them how to be independent
And to stand up on their own
The kids
Gotta make it better for the kids
Try and guide them on that narrow path
The straight way to go
The kids
Ooh, the kids
They're depending, they're depending on you and me
Please make it better, make it better for the kids
Make sure they know about their Maker
Im talking about the Creator
The kids
Im living my life for the kids
Gotta clean place to live
Enough food to eat
Oh
Listen to them laugh
Look at them playing
Not a care in the world
Fade
