The Power Of The Children [Song]

By Poser

If wasn't for children in this world
A lot of ugliness would unfold
But the children give us reason to live
Their presence make us think positive
I observe in every walk of life,
How the love of children does avoid strife
Whether foreign or local, black or white, be it foe or friend
We all have a soft spot for the children.

Hear them fathers...
If wasn't for them children, girl, I leave you
If wasn't for them children, I done gone
If wasn't for them children, I'd ah take off already
Is them children saving you presently. You damn lucky!

Children are the power in our lives
Because of the children we sacrifice
Look at when relationship going wrong
Is childen does help to bring it back strong
In some situation you will find
Children does get hatred out of we mind
When love turn to war domestically and man turning beast
Is the little ones that help create peace

Hear them mothers...
If wasn't for them children, man, you gone through
If wasn't for them children, you in  pain
If wasn't for them children, you done get horn already
Is them children keeping mih head steady. Not to doubt me!

Any time I hear a baby cry
I does have to wipe tears from mih eye
I'm a father, I love children too
To children, nothing wrong I will do
Blessed are the children everywhere
To the children, adults should show more care
In every home and in all countries, you'll agree with me
Children help to maintain stability.

Hear them fathers...
If wasn't for them children, girl, I beat you
If wasn't for them children, you get shaft
If wasn't for them children, I'd ah dunk you already
I'd ah put your whole life in jeopardy. Dem stopping me!

Save the children, save them for me, please
Children does guarantee love increase
And if you all already good Mum and Dad
You should not do things that would make them sad
Domestic violence shouldn't be
Please don't let them see that hostility
You are the ones they look up to, be humble and mild
Try and set an example for the child.

I like to hear...
Because of the children, I stop liming
Because of the children, I off the drugs
Because of the children, I doh drink, I doh gamlble
Them children must know I responsible. Show example!

A Note From The Gull

Thank you, Poser. This song takes me back to my childhood and although I never heard either of my parents ever say to the other that we had changed their lives completely and that they lived their lives around us and for us, I understand today that this is exactly what they did without a murmur.

 "Patria est communis omnium parens" - Our native land is the common parent of us all. Keep it beautiful, make it even more so.

Blessed is all of creation
Blessed be my beautiful people
Blessed be the day of our awakening
Blessed is my country
Blessed are her patient hills.

Mweh ka allay!
