I just want to ask a question
Who really cares
To save a world in despair
Who really cares

There'll come a time
There'll come a time
When the world won't be singin'
When the world won't be singing, no no
Flowers won't grow
Flowers won't grow
Bells won't be ringin'
The bells won't be ringing

Who really cares
Who really cares
Who's willing to try
Who's willing to try
To save a world
To save a world
That's destined to die
That is destined to die

When I look at the world
When I look at the world
It fills me with sorrow
It fills me with sorrow
Little children today
Our children tomorrow
Are really gonna suffer tomorrow
They're gonna suffer tomorrow

Oh what a shame
It's more than a shame
Such a bad way to live
It's not the right way to live
Ah, who is to blame
But who is to blame
We can't stop livin'
When we can't stop living

Live, live for life
Live your life
But let live everybody
Live life for the children
Live our lives for the children
For the children

You see, let's save the children
Save the children
Let's, let's save all the children
You've got to save the children
Save the children
Save the children
Save the children
