What About The Children?                                     

This song was written for a local Portland, OR. Public Schools funding campaign. It states that the children of today deserve the same chances that we have had.

Written and performed by Linda & Greg Lewis. Copyright 1996, BMI.

In this fast-paced world we live, we see progress marching on. But what kind of future are we giving our kids, if what they hope for soon is gone?
As children we were taught to follow the Golden Rule. Now it's your turn to do for the children, the same that was done for you.

What about the children? They deserve the same chance too. What about the children? Yes, there's something you can do.

But you say 'We can't afford it.' And that 'we have to cut the cost.' But what could be more important than making sure their dreams are lost?
When will we ever learn?

What about the children? We hold their futures in our hands. What about the children? Now's the time to take a stand. What about the children?

When will we ever learn; that we keep taking their hopes away? What about the children? There is something we can do. When will we ever learn?
They deserve the same chance too. What about the children? Yes, there's something we can do. When will we ever learn?

What about the children? When will we ever learn? What about the children? When will we ever learn? What about the children?
