babies
last night another child was born
you hold it tight to keep it warm
you see the questions in his eyes
is it hell or is it paradise
where i'm growing up to be a man
is there someone here to understand
the joy and hope i bring for you
who will ever mention it is true
that

the babies of today are the children of tomorrow
these children filled with laughter
would take away your sorrow
if only you would let them be
if only you would try to see
life with the children's eyes
never tell them foolish lies
show the a better way of living
a way of love peace and forgiving

last night another baby died
in some crazy people needless fight
another child died for starvation
newspapers calling the sensation
but noone ever understands
that a baby's life ist in our hands
the joy and hope it brings for you
who will ever mention it is true
that

the babies of today are the children of tomorrow
these children filled with laughter
would take away your sorrow
if only you would let them be
if only you would try to see
life with the children's eyes
never tell them foolish lies
show the a better way of living
a way of love peace and forgiving
