Brown Baby/Save The Children

Brown Baby/Save The Children

Diana Ross

Brown baby
Brown baby
As you grow up
I want you to drink from the plenty cup
I want you to stand up
Tall and proud
I want you to speak up
Speak up clear and cloud

Brown baby
Brown baby
As years roll by
Walk with your head held high
I want you to live by
Live by the justice code
I want you to walk down
Walk down the freedom road

Brown baby
Brown baby
Now baby
Lie away
Lie away sleeping
Lie away here in my arms
While your mommy and daddy protect you
And keep you save from harm

Brown baby
Brown baby
It makes me so glad
That you will have things
I've never had
When out of men's hearts
All the hate is hurled
You're gonna live
You're gonna live in a better world

Brown baby
Mmammamama
Brown baby
Mmammamama
Sweet thing
Lie away sleeping

I just want to ask a question
Who really cares?
To save a world
A world in despair
Who cares?

There'll come a time, when the world won't be singing
And flowers won't grow, no, bells won't be ringin'
But who cares?
Who really cares?
Who's willing to try to save the world
That is destined to die

When I look at the world it fills me with sorrow
Little children today really suffer tomorrow
Oh what a shame, what a sad way to live
All who is to blame, when we can't stop livin'

You gotta live, live for life
But let live everybody
Live life for the children
Oh, for the children
You see, we have to save the babies
Save the babies
Save the babies, save the babies
If you wanna love, save the babies

All the children all over the world
