  • Little child dry your crying eyes
    How can I explain the fear you feel inside
    'Cause you were born into this evil world
    Where man is killing man and no one knows just why
    What have we become just look what we have done
    All that we destroyed you must build again

    When the children cry let them know we tried
    'Cause when the children sing then the new world begins

    Little child you must show the way
    To a better day for all the young
    'Cause you were born for all the world to see
    That we all can live with love and peace
    No more presidents and all the wars will end
    One united world under God

    When the children cry let them know we tried
    'Cause when the children sing then the new world begins

    What have we become just look what we have done
    All that we destroyed you must build again
    No more presidents and all the wars will end
    One united world under God

    When the children cry let them know we tried
    When the children fight let them know it ain't right
    When the children pray let them know the way
    'Cause when the children sing then the new world begins Writer/s: VITO BRATTA, MIKE TRAMP
