Gentleman - For The Children

Come let us sing a song for the children, oh yes
Cah Babylon nuh care about the children, oh no

I see dem doing in dem doing, all dem doing
Dem no care about the children (children), the children
Dem only sit down and mash up the society
And nothing for the children, the children, yeah
Righteousness and love we haffi give it
To the the children (children), the children
A no hatred, a no grudge could never give that
To the children, the children, yeah

Come let us pave a way for the children
So that they all can live, oh yes

Righteousness and love we haffi give it
To the the children (children), the children
A no hatred, a no grudge could never give that
To the children, the children, yeah
