Lyrics

Carefully Taught/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 children will listen
