What do children do with these colors so hallow?
Yes I know their will is true
But their throats must hurt to swallow
Like an orphan with his gruel
In a theater oh, so cruel
What do children do

I saw some faces today, they smiled
They smiled at me and you be the bay in the maple trees
Nothing in their faces looked real, real, real to me and you
But I'm gonna keep it with me anyway
What do children do, do, do
What do children do, do, do

So when the curtain parts for you and the tiers are full of laughter
Ah, you will come in bloom
And I'll be up there somewhere
Just hanging from the rafters
I'll be swinging from the rafters for you
And we'll make the movie with Victorian steeples
My heart under all these people

Like a sugar cake can look so good on a china plate
It makes the world seem sweeter now
Mary's on the swings
But I'm on the grass
Nothing will pass

So give me my coat and hand me my camera
And we'll shoot the film with lighting tender
With a beautiful hymn that's how I'd like to remember
The perfect pretender
Whose movie is about to begin
With another lovely hymn and I'm ready now
And the show was oh so precious
Oh, so precious tonight
