lyrics

Sing Child, Sing!

Sing child, sing child/
sing like you were born.
Sing like you were born today/
sing like you were born.

Move child, move child/
like you have two feet.
Dance like you were born today/
and couldn’t keep a beat.

Laugh child, laugh child/
shake your weary head.
Laugh a spell and if you can/
keep laughing till you’re dead.

Don’t let the world become your shoulder/
who will it have to lean upon?
For you will know when you are older/
you are the one it’s leaning on.
You are the one it’s leaning on.

Speak child, speak child/
let them hear your voice.
Speak about the ones you love/
speak for your own choice.

Ring child, ring child/
bells for better days.
Ring out cries of freedom/
for the children in their chains.

Don’t let the world become your shoulder/
who will it have to lean upon?
For you will know when you are older/
you are the one it’s leaning on.
You are the one it’s leaning on.
