The following are song lines that are disturbing and heart tugging as it talks about children.. About a child who's life is about to be cut off before he's even born, about a child who is being ignored and left behind just because of his disability, a child who's a product of divorced parents, and a child who will grow up in an unhappy home.

Oh little baby you'll never cry

Nor will you hear the sweet lullaby

Oh unborn child if you only knew

Just what your mama is planning to do

You're still a-clingin' to the tree of life

But soon you'll be cut off before you get ripe.

Oh unborn child beginning to grow

Inside your mama that you'll never know

Oh tiny bud that grows in the womb

Only to be crushed before you bloom.

UNBORN CHILD/Seals & Croft

People come for children and take them for their own

They all seem to pass me and I am left alone

I know they like to take me but when they see I'm blind

They always take other child and I'm left here all alone.

No mother's arm to hold me or sooth me when Icry

Sometimes it gets so lonely I wish that I could die

I'd walk the streets of heaven where all the blinds can see

And just like all the other kids there'll be a home for me.

I don't wanna play house, it makes my mama cry

'Cause when she played house, my daddy said goodbye..


Our little boy is four years old and quite a little man

So we spell out the words we don't want him to understand

Watch him smile,he thinks it's Christmas or his fifth birthday

And he thinks C-U-S-T-O-D-Y spells fun or play

Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today

Me and my little J-O-E will be goin' away

D-I-V-O-R-C-E/Tammy Wynette

You're sleeping son I know, but really this can't wait

I wanted to explain before it gets too late

For your mother and me love has finally died

This is no happy home but God knows how I tried..

Sleep on you haven't heard a word, perhaps it's just as well

Why spoil your little dream, why put you through the hell...

MY BOY/Elvis Presley

Don't cry daddy, daddy please don't cry

Daddy you still got me and little Tommy

Together we'll find a brand new mommy

Daddy, daddy please laugh again

Daddy ride us on your back again..

DON'T CRY DADDY/Elvis Presley
