Let the children play Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Remember when children used to play
Not a care, not a worry
Just fiddling with clay
Remember how they ran about
Rolling in the playing fields
Laughing, loving the bright blue sky
Enjoying childhood: a time to play

Who wonders where the laughter went
that filled the air with bubbles of joy?
Where do the children go out to play?
I hear they now play inside
It's safer punching buttons for a game
Flipping channels, popping coke and crisps
that's play

Whatever happened to all the games
A time to learn in a fun-filled way
to make friends, to share, to win, to lose, to be
Hey, they learn all they need in class
There really is no need for play

Away with the heavy bags of books
Let the children learn through games
Let the little ones run about
Let their laughter fill the air
Let the children play
