Bee Gees – And The Children Laughing lyrics

Well, I been working up a fever trying to
Straighten up the mess in my mind about this place
I can't contain myself anymore
Can't you see it's written all over my face
Why don't you get on your feet
It's about time you got to think
What ever happened to peace
Well open your eyes and you'll see children laughing,
Voices singin', hearts a-beatin' ah...

Your always talkin' right and talkin' about
The world and it's corruption and moral decay
But what you gonna do about it, nothing,
'Cause you're more like children then children while they play
Why you're so clean through and through you won't shake hands
With a negro who's maybe cleaner then you
Well listen around and you'll hear children laughin',
Voices singin', hearts a-beatin' like they always do
So what's wrong with you, ah...

You're so blown up with anger about the world
You write the songs about
Yet you don't even know your neighbors name
Now you want to go the the moon and live there
When you know it'll only end up the same
How can he give you any gratitude,
With your endless sickenin' attitude
You strive to get ahead
But you leave each other dead
Can't you see, children laughin',
Voices singin', hearts beatin' like they always do
So what's wrong with you, ah...

Children laughin', voices singin' hearts beatin'
Children laughin', voices singin', (fade)
