Lyrics

The Children of Africa
©2008 by Marla Lewis

Reaching, crawling
Learning to walk now
Babbling, calling
Learning to talk now
Growing stronger every day
Watch us run and laugh and play

We are the Children of Africa
Drinking milk from America
Every morning when your package arrives
We thank you for saving our lives

We were hungry
Lonely and scared then
Lost our family
Hadn't a prayer then
Growing weaker every day
Then came help from far away

We are the Children of Africa
Drinking milk from America
Every morning when your package arrives
We thank you for saving our lives

BRIDGE:
When we grow up, we're gonna help our children
Love them, feed them, and send them to school
Give them everything that we've been given
Teach them Giving is the Golden Rule

We are the Children of Africa
Drinking milk from America
Every morning when your package arrives
We thank you for saving our lives
