Lyrics
Verse 1 (narrator): Verse 2 (children): Chorus 1 (children):
Two Boys--
filled up with joy.
you know to them
the whole world's a toy.
When you put them down
you know it makes me frown.
Can't you see just
what you're doing to them?
We are boys
We are girls
You know some day
we'll inherit the world
We hope you get it right
Grownups please don't fight
Can't you see just
what you're doing to us?
We are
The Children of Spirit
We are
The Children of Oz
We are blessed
to reach for the rainbow
We are blessed
to reach for the stars
Verse 3 (children): Verse 4 (adults): Chorus 2 (adults): Chorus 3 (everyone):
When you fight
you each think you're right
But to us
its a terrible sight
Mama don't put us down
Daddy please don't frown
Can't you see just
what you're doing to us?
Wise old souls
brought into this world
Some came as boys
and some came as girls
Its a great big space
So help them find their place
so they can improve
the human race
They are
The Children of Spirit
They are
The Children of Oz
We are blessed
to have them with us
We all are blessed as we teach them
to reach for the stars
We are
The Children of Spirit
We are
The Children of Oz
We are blessed
to be here together
We are all blessed as together
we reach for the stars
