Sing Children Sing
Lesley Duncan Lyrics

Though you feel at times you just can't win
Sing sing children sing
That you give is known so don't give in
Sing sing children sing

Sing of the true way, sing of the time
Show them the new way, let your light shine.

He who lights the fire must surely burn
Turn turn children turn
From the ones who see but will not learn
Turn turn children turn

Turn from the darkness, turn all the way
Look for the sunshine - then don't turn away.

For everyone who doesn't stand must fall
Call call children call
And he who finds himself then finds us all
Call call children call

Call to the broken, call to the hate
Let the word be spoken, before it's too late.

One of my old time favourites. I bought the record a good 50+ years ago which is now very scratched and crackley. so it good to listen to this clear version.


Many thanks for uploading the original version of this lovely song.

Arthur Harris

Not the original version.

I was lucky enough to know Leslie when I was a teenager (she and Tony were regulars in the pub my parents owned) I never knew of her music career apart that she sang backing vocals on a song we had on our jukebox.
