Hey children
Whatcha gonna do
When they say that you’ve come of age
Hey children
Your time is now
You gotta look at the very next page
Look around you, see what you see
Then decide what you want to be
You got to stay children

Hey children
Do you want to be free
Of the way that it’s been up to now
Hey children
Don’t you know there’s a way
To make it better but you’re wonderin’ how
Listen closely, hear what is said
The answer’s inside your head
You got to stay children

You may think what’s inside of you
Is all you’re gonna need
But somehow in spite of you
You got to plant the seed
You can learn what your teachers don’t know
There’s a place where your parents didn’t go

Look all around you
Can you feel all the vibes
There’s love all around you
Just be glad you’re alive
This time around
We can learn how to love
If you’re what you found
It all came from above

Makes no difference what you prefer
You got a soul that can show
You got a mind that can know
Makes no difference what you thought you were
You got a mind that can know
We all got the horn that can blow

You got a horn that can blow
You got a soul
You got a mind that can blow
You got soul

Hey children
There’ll come a time
When you have to decide what’s real
Hey children
It’s all in your mind
But just listen to what you feel
Listen closely, believe what you hear
You can live in a world without fear
You got to stay children
You got to stay children
