Kinderen Voor Kinderen - Children now

All the money in the world, all the things that we buy,
profits that we have to make,
the price is much too high.
Children working in factories and mines.
All the dangers that they face,
paying with their lives.

Children first, children now!
It’s too late for when and how.
People we must understand
child labour it has to end.
Raise our voices, let’s all shout:
children first, children now (4x)!

Children of the world have the future in their hands.
But if they cannot read or write
they don’t stand a chance.
They have a right to play outside, a right to go to school.
To be a child like any child,
and not be someones tool.

Children first, children now!
It’s too late for when and how.
People we must understand
child labour it has to end.
Raise our voices, let’s all shout:
children first!

Every child that can be saved
is like a brand new star.
Darkness will be blown away
and a light will shine so far.
Every day a better day
no work and no more pain.
All the tears will wash away
like summer rain.

Children first, children now!
It’s too late for when and how.
People we must understand
child labour it has to end.
Raise our voices, let’s all shout:
children first!

Children first, children now!
It’s too late for when and how.
People we must understand
child labour it has to end.
Raise our voices, let’s all shout:
children first, children now (8x)!
