  • Torn from their families
    Mothers go hungry
    To feed their children
    But children go hungry
    There's so many big men
    They're out making millions
    When poverty's profits
    Just blame the children

    If there's a God in heaven
    What's he waiting for
    If He can't hear the children
    Then he must see the war
    But it seems to me
    That he leads his lambs
    To the slaughter house
    And not the promised land

    Dying for causes
    They don't understand
    We've been taking their futures
    Right out of their hands
    They need the handouts
    To hold back the tears
    There's so many crying
    But so few that hear

    If there's a God in heaven
    Well, what's he waiting for

    If there's a God in heaven
    What's he waiting for Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, DAVEY JOHNSTONE, ELTON JOHN
