Suffer The Little Children

Album: Wide Awake In Dreamland (1988)
  • Sweet Melissa, I often pray for you
    I hope your suffering was brief
    I hope the angels that watch over all little children
    Came for you and took you someplace beautiful and sweet
    Aahh..
    Suffer The Little Children

    Dear Melissa, I often think of you
    Everytime I hold my baby in my arms
    I say a prayer for your mama and daddy too
    I know they miss you, miss you since you're gone

    Suffer The Little Children
    At the hands of evil men
    No baby dolls, no teddy bears
    No lullabies for them
    Every mother's nightmare
    Will it ever end
    Suffer The Little Children
    At the hands of evil men

    You who done the deed better do some prayin' too
    Better hope that God's forgivin' like they say
    Cause somewhere, somebody keeps a list
    Of the evils that men do
    An' your name's right up there
    I heard 'em say
    Aahh..

    Suffer The Little Children
    At the hands of evil men
    No baby dolls, no teddy bears
    No lullabies for them
    Every mother's nightmare
    Will it ever end
    Suffer The Little Children
    At the hands of evil men Writer/s: NEIL GERALDO, PAT BENATAR
