lyrics

Children, take care of your grownups
They’re not quite as sure as they seem
They’re quickly confused and easily bruised
And come right apart at the seams
Children, take care of your grownups
Who’ve been there since your life began
They stumble and plod and their techniques are flawed
But they’re doing the best that they can
Hey now we’re doing our best, we’re doing the best that we can

Children, take care of your grownups
These weird looking people you know
They’re slow on the up-take and make lots of mis-takes
But sometimes their brighter lights glow
Children, take care of your grownups
Even when you know that they’re wrong
They stress and they guess and they’re not that well dressed
But they’re trying so hard to be strong
Hey now, we’re trying so hard, we’re trying so hard to be strong

It’s a big, big world
And we are so small
Sometimes even grownups feel
Like they’re not so tall

So children, take care of your grownups
Sometimes they’re still just like kids
Little girls and boys grasping for poise
Just like their own parents did
Children, take care of your grownups
These dishevelled women and men
Hold them and keep them, love them and teach them
They need you just like you need them
Hey now, we need you, we need you just like you need us
