And The Children Laughing Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Ah, well, I been working up a fever trying to straighten up
The mess in my mind about this place
I can't contain myself anymore
Can't you see it's written all over my face?

Why don't you get on your feet?
It's about time, you got to think
Whatever happened to peace
Well, open your eyes and you'll see children laughing

Voices singin', heart's a-beatin', ah

Your always talkin' right and talkin' about
The world and it's corruption and moral decay
But what you gonna do about it? Nothing
'Cause you're more like children then children while they play

Why you're so clean through and through
You won't shake hands with a negro
Who's maybe cleaner then you?
Well, listen around and you'll hear children laughin'

Voices singin', hearts a-beatin' like they always do
So what's wrong with you? Ah

You're so blown up with anger about the world
You write the songs about
Yet you don't even know your neighbor's name
Now you want to go the the moon and live there

When you know it'll only end up the same
How can he give you any gratitude
With your endless sickenin' attitude?
You strive to get ahead but you leave each other dead

Can't you see children laughin'?
Voices singin', hearts beatin' like they always do
So what's wrong with you? Ah

Children laughin', voices singin' hearts beatin'
Children laughin', voices singin, [unverified]
