Where Do The Children Play?

Well I think it’s fine, building jumbo planes
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train
Switch on summer from a slot machine
Get what you want to if you want, ‘cause you can get anything
I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas
And you make them long, and you make them tough
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can’t get off
Oh, I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you’ve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air
Will you keep on building higher,
‘til there’s no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live; will you tell us when to die?
I know we’ve come a long way,
We’re changing day to day,
But tell me, where do the children play?
