Where do the Children play?

I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
Yusuf Islam, The Very Best of Cat Stevenswhere do the children play
Have you seen the
laden boats
and heard
the children cry?
Many left their country
many left to die!

They left the stark reality
of homes
turned to dust!
Streets where
children used to play
choked with mistrust!

Yet when they reached shores
where peace
is upheld!
Some turned their backs
and refuge
was withheld!

Would you leave your
beloved home
to cross
a treacherous sea
and risk your children’s lives
in order to be free?
