The parents are the people we’re depending on
For the growth of the children
If they treat them right
We gonna have a brighter future
If they treat them wrong
We gonna have brats in the world

If they grow up without the parents
Who’s gonna tell them this is right
If they grow up without the parents
Who’s gonna tell them this is wrong

You’ve got to fast your while
Just think about the children
If they grow up without the parents
Who’s gonna tell them this is right

Without the mother, children are suffering
Without the father, children are suffering
Without the parents, children are suffering

Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer

You’ve got to watch out my son
If your mother doesn’t care for you
You’ve got to watch out my girl
If your mother doesn’t care for you

Question yako is there
It’s gonna take care
They need parental care
They need spiritual care

If they grow up without the parents
Who’s gonna tell them this is right
If they grow up without the parents
Who’s gonna tell them this is wrong

They need parental care
They need spiritual care
If they grow up without parental care
Who’s gonna tell them this is wrong

Without the mother, children are suffering
Without the father, children are suffering
Without the parents, children are suffering

The parents are the people we’re depending on
For the growth of the children
If they treat them right
We gonna have a brighter future
If they treat them wrong
We gonna have brats in the world

If they grow up without the parents
Who’s gonna tell them this is right
If they grow up without the parents
Who’s gonna tell them this is wrong

Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer
Born to suffer, born to suffer
