THE SONG “WHERE DO THE CHILDREN PLAY?” WAS THE OPENING TRACK
OF CAT STEVENS’ ALBUM TEA FOR THE TILLERMAN, RELEASED IN 1970
Well I think it's fine building Jumbo planes
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train
Switch on summer from a slot machine
Get what you want to if you want, 'cause you can get anything
I know we've come a long way
We're changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play
Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas
And you make them long, and you make them tough
But they just go on and on, and it seems you can't get off
Oh, I know we've come a long way
We're changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play
When you crack the sky, scrapers fill the air
Will you keep on building higher ‘til there’s no more room up there
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die
I know we've come a long way
We're changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play
