Lyrics

Tell me, Doctor Doctor
Why my child cries
I can hear her calling
When I lay awake at night
I am only human, only human
But my child shouldn't pay for the life I lead

Tell me, Doctor Doctor
There's nothing, nohow, nowhere and no one but
You and me and all these children
Got this mountain to climb
You and me gonna climb this mountain
Leave no child behind

Listen, Little Brother
Why you want to die so young
Nothing 'bout the fire
Warms the blood from a smoking gun
This road from knowing nothing
Leads you to believing in nothing at all

Listen, Little Brother
There's nothing, nohow, nowhere and no one but
You and me and all these children
Got this mountain to climb
You and me gonna climb this mountain
Leave no child behind
Making a way out of no way for all these children of mine
You and me gonna climb this mountain
Leave no child behind

Newsman on the TV
Grandma raising children's child
Teacher working weekends
Rich folks drinking champagne with caviar and wine
You don't have to move a mountain
Just a stone on the path of the smallest child

Tell them, Don't give up
Don't give up on nothing, nohow, nowhere and no one. It's You and me and all these children...
