Where will all the children play?

Where will all the children play
Winski songs, speech by Charlie Chaplin
Skelley’s Dream

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor.
That’s not my business.
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone.
I should like to help everyone – if possible –
Jew, Gentile – black man – white.

Where will all the children play
When we bomb their grounds away
Where will all their dreams have gone
When we kill all of our own

What is the matter with us
What is the matter and

We fly from here up to the moon
and kill the lion in one afternoon
But peace seems so hard to do
is this what you teach the children too

What is the matter with us
What is the matter
What is the matter with us
What is the matter

Oohhhh Love come running cause we need your touch
We lost connection we need so much

And we need love, and inspiration Oh
Where is our imagination oh oh oh
Why can’t we imagine
Why can’t we imagine

You, the people have the power – the power to create machines.
The power to create happiness!
You, the people, have the power to make this life
free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.

Then – in the name of democracy –
let us use that power – let us all unite.
Let us fight for a new world –
a decent world that will give men a chance to work –
that will give youth a future and old age a security.
By the promise of these things,
brutes have risen to power.
But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise.
They never will!

Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people!
Now let us fight to fulfil that promise!
Let us fight to free the world.

Where will all the children play
When we bomb their grounds away
Where will all their dreams have gone
When we kill all of our own

What is the matter with us
What is the matter

What is the matter with us
What is the matter

Our knowledge has made us cynical;
our cleverness, hard and unkind.
Wethink too much and feel too little.
