Carefully Taught and Children Will Listen - Barbra Streisand -

You've got to be taught

To hate and fear,

You've got to be taught

From year to year,

It's got to be drummed

In your dear little ear

You've got to be carefully taught

You've got to be taught before it's too late,

Before you are six or seven or eight,

To hate all the people your relatives hate,

You've got to be carefully taught

Careful the things you say

Children will listen

Careful the things you do

Children will see

And learn

Children may not obey

But children will listen

Children will look to you

For which way to turn

To learn what to be

Careful before you say

"Listen to me"

Children will listen

How can you say to a child who's in flight

Don't slip away and I won't hold so tight?

What can you say that no matter how slight won't be misunderstood?

What do you leave to your child when you're dead?

Only whatever you put in its head

Things that your mother and father had said

Which were left to them too

Careful what you say

Children will listen

Careful you do it too

Children will see and learn

Oh Guide them but step away

Children will glisten

Temper with what is true

And children will turn

If just to be free

Careful before you say

"Listen to me"

Children will listen

Children will listen

Children will listen
