Tears streaming down, her heart is broken  Because her life is hurting, so am I
He wears a frown, his dreams are choking 
And because he stands alone, his dreams will die
So, humbly I come to you and say
As I sound aloud the warfare of today 
Hear me, I pray

 CHORUS 
What about the children 
To ignore is so easy
So many innocent children would choose the wrong way
So what about the children  Remember when we were children 
And if not for those who loved us and who cared enough to show
us
 Where would we be today 

Sir, where is your son
 Where lies his refuge 
And if he can't come to you, then where can he run
Such a foolish girl, yet still, she's your daughter 
And if you will just reminisce your days of young 
You see, it's not where you've been, nor what you've done
 Because I know a friend who specializes in great outcomes
See His love overcomes 

 CHORUS (2 times)

 Where would we be today  Where would we be today  Where would we be today 
What about the the children
