Do You Know Where Your Children Are

  • Father comes home from work, and he's scared to death
    Mother cries for the kid, and the note she read
    Father runs to the table, he says "What's going on?"
    Mother cries desperately, "Our little baby's gone!"

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    She wrote that she is tired of step daddy using her
    Saying that he'll buy her things, while sexually abusing her
    Just think that she's all alone somewhere out on the street
    How will this girl survive?
    She ain't got nothing to eat!

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Save me (from this living hell)
    Save me (cause I don't wanna know)
    Save me

    Now she's on the move, she's off to Hollywood
    She says she wanna be a star, she heard the money's good
    She gets off from the train station, the man is waiting there
    "I'll show you where the money is, girl just let down your hair"
    He's taking her on the streets, of Sunset Boulevard
    She's selling her body hard, girl that will take you far
    The police come 'round the corner, somebody there they told
    He's arresting this little girl, that's only twelve years old!

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they are

    Do you know where your children are?
    Because it's now twelve o'clock
    If they're somewhere out on the street
    Just imagine how scared they areWriter/s: MICHAEL JACKSON
