THE BURNING SPEAR - Throw Down Your Arms

CHILDREN YOU GOT TO STOP

Jeezus! I saw and interview on TV with a woman who had just lost her son. I don't think I have ever been so moved. The words below are mostly what she said. It's got to stop.

CHILDREN YOU GOT TO STOP

children you got to stop
children you got to stop
you got to enjoy your lives
no more killin'
on the streets of London

I want to hold my boy
I want to see my boy again
when will I see my boy again?


children stop all this killin'
children stop all the stabbin'
got to be safe to walk around
no more killin'
on the streets of London

I want to hold my boy
I want to see my boy again
when will I see my boy again?

children put your guns away
children put your knives away
you all need to have a future
no more killin'
on the streets of London|

I want to hold my boy
I want to see my boy again
when will I see my boy again?


look at all your mothers tears
look at all your mothers grief
all her futures gone with you
no more killin'
on the streets of London
no more killin'
on the streets of Kingston
no more killin'
on the streets of Mexico
no more killin'
on the streets of Manila
no more killin'
on the streets of Caracas

I want to hold my boy
I want to see my boy again
when will I see my boy again?
