"Kids" as written by Nicholas George Littlemore and Michael Holbrook Penniman....
The kids are playing in the sun
They think their life has just begun
For them it’s just another day
Playing games all the kids would play
There won’t be a me and you
If we keep on fighting like we do
Baby please don’t walk away,
Saying things only kids would say
Kids, what do they know about loving now
Loving, loving you here and I love when you’re gone
Just another can’t find the way

Take your care boots on, this is love long gone
Give a piece of trust, make it worth fighting for
Take your care boots on, this is love long gone
Give a piece of trust, make it worth fighting for

You shout with nothing to say
And fight til you get your way
It hurts but what can I do,
I won’t turn into working tool
Kids, what do they know about loving now
Loving, loving you here and I love when you’re gone
Just another can’t find the way

Take your care boots on, this is love long gone
Give a piece of trust, make it worth fighting for
Take your care boots on, this is love long gone
Give a piece of trust, make it worth fighting for

You’re playing in my …sun
You’re thinking life has just begun
You’re throwing all my love away
Just another California day

Take your care boots on, this is love long gone
Give a piece of trust, make it worth fighting for
Take your care boots on, this is love long gone
Give a piece of trust, make it worth fighting for.

    The kids are playing in the sun
    They think their life has just begun
    For them it’s just another day
    Playing games all the kids would play
    There won’t be a me and you
    If we keep on fighting like we do
    Baby don’t you walk away,
    Saying things only kids would say
    Kids, what do they know about nothing now
    Loving, loving you here and I love when you’re gone
    Just another California day

    Take your kid gloves off, this is love long gone
    Give our peace a chance, make it worth fighting for
    Take your kid gloves off, this is love long gone
    Give our peace a chance, make it worth fighting for

    You shout with nothing to say
    And fight til you get your way
    It hurts, but what can I do?
    I won’t turn into a kid, too
    Kids, what do they know about nothing now
    Loving, loving you here and I love when you’re gone

    Take your kid gloves off, this is love long gone
    Give our peace a chance, make it worth fighting for
    Take your kid gloves off, this is love long gone
    Give our peace a chance, make it worth fighting for

    You’re playing in the setting sun
    You’re thinking life has just begun
    You’re throwing all my love away
    Just another California day
    Kids, what do they know about nothing now
    Just another California day
    Loving, loving you here and I love when you’re gone
    Just another California day

    Take your kid gloves off, this is love long gone
    Give our peace a chance, make it worth fighting for
    Take your kid gloves off, this is love long gone
    Give our peace a chance, make it worth fighting for

    *****

    Great song with a pretty straightforward meaning, at least to me: two adult people are arguing. One is acting like a child. The other person in the argument explains that they won't stoop to acting like a child.

    Probably one of my favorite songs on this album, but I still like "Life In Cartoon Motion" overall.

    General CommentThe correct version — from MikaSounds — Official Site!

    The kids are playing in the sun
    They think their life has just begun
    For them it’s just another day
    Playing games only kids would play
    There won’t be a me and you
    If we keep on fighting like we do
    Baby don’t you walk away
    Saying things only kids would say
    Kids what do they know about nothing at all
    Lover love when your hear and I love when your gone
    Just another California day

    Take your kid gloves off, This is love not war
    Give our peace a chance, Make it worth fighting for
    Take your kid gloves off, This is love not war
    Give our peace a chance, Make it worth fighting for

    You shout with nothing to say
    And fight till you get your way
    It hurts but what can I do
    I won’t turn into a kid too
    Kids what do they know about nothing at all
    Lover love when your hear and I love when your gone

    Take your kid gloves off, This is love not war
    Give our peace a chance, Make it worth fighting for
    Take your kid gloves off, This is love not war
    Give our peace a chance, Make it worth fighting for

    You’re playing in the sand and the sun
    You think your life has just begun
    You’re throwing all my love away
    Just another California day
    Kids what do they know about nothing at all
    Just another California day
    Lover love when your hear and I love when your gone
    Just another California day

    Take your kid gloves off, This is love not war
    Give our peace a chance, Make it worth fighting for
    Take your kid gloves off, This is love not war
    Give our peace a chance, Make it worth fighting for
