Title :

Children Will Listen


How do you say to your child in the night
Nothing is all black but then nothing is all white?
How do you say it will all be alright
When you know that it mightn't be true?
What do you do?

Careful the things you say
Children will listen.
Careful the things you do
Children will see.
And learn.
Children may not obey
But children will listen.
Children will look to you
For which way to turn
To learn what to be.
Careful before you say
"Listen to me."
Children will listen.

Careful the wish you make
Wishes are children.
Careful the path they take
Wishes come true
Not free.
Careful the spell you cast
Not just on children.
Sometimes the spell may last
Past what you can see
And turn against you...

Careful the tale you tell.
That is the spell.
Children will listen...

How can you say to a child who's in flight
Don't slip away and I won't hold so tight?
What can you say that no matter how slight won't be misunderstood?
What do you leave to your child when you're dead
Only what ever you put in its head
Things that your mother and father had said
Which were left to them too.
Careful what you saychildren will listen
Careful you do it toochildren will see and learn.
Oh!

Guide them but step away
Children will glisten.
Temper with what is true
And children will turn
If just to be free.
Careful before you say
"Listen to me."
Children will listen...
Children will listen!
Childrenchildren will listen
