or
The Boys Choir of Harlem

I watch the world; it breaks my heart
How many lives are thrown away
To change the world
We'd have to start with each of our children
We'll never stop our ways of war
If we don't stop to love a child
We've got to give them something more
More than we've ever given before

Sing for the children
Take time for the children
And love can be learned if we just teach it
Bring to the children
A dream to believe in
And then have the strength to help them reach it

I close my eyes
My father's face is always there
Though he is gone
He sees me through my darkest days
He lives here inside of me
If we could give each child that much
The world would be a better place
A tender word and a loving touch
Are a small price to pay for saving the life

Sing for the children
Take time for the children
And love can be learned if we just teach it
Bring to the children
A dream to believe in
And then have the strength to help them reach it

The children need us now
If you think that they can wait another day
You're wrong as you can be
They have just so long to be children
We must be strong, strong for the children

A single spark can start a fire
A single voice begins the song
That turns the world into a choir
As over and over the voices are raised

Sing for the children
Take time for the children
And love can be learned if we just teach it
Bring to the children
A dream to believe in
And then have the strength to help them reach it
