Paul McCartney Deliver Your Children Lyrics

Last updated: 09/29/2013 08:39:00 AM


WELL, THE RAIN WAS A-FALLING AND THE GROUND TURNED TO MUD,
I WAS WATCHING ALL THE PEOPLE A-RUNNIN' FROM THE FLOOD.
SO I STARTED TO PRAYIN', THOUGH I AIN'T NO PRAYIN' MAN,
FOR THE LORD TO COME A-HELPIN', KNOWING HE'D UNDERSTAND.

DELIVER YOUR CHILDREN TO THE GOOD, GOOD LIFE,
GIVE 'EM PEACE AND SHELTER AND A FORK AND KNIFE.
SHINE A LIGHT IN THE MORNING AND A LIGHT AT NIGHT
AND IF A THING GOES WRONG, YOU'D BETTER MAKE IT RIGHT.

WELL, I HAD ME A WOMAN, SHE WAS GOOD AND CLEAN.
SHE SPENT ALL THE DAY WITH THE WASHING MACHINE.
BUT WHEN IT CAME TO LOVIN', SHE WAS NEVER AROUND,
SHE WAS OUT GETTING DIRTY ALL OVER TOWN.

DELIVER YOUR CHILDREN TO THE GOOD, GOOD LIFE,
GIVE 'EM PEACE AND SHELTER AND A FORK AND KNIFE.
SHINE A LIGHT IN THE MORNING AND A LIGHT AT NIGHT
AND IF A THING GOES WRONG, YOU'D BETTER MAKE IT RIGHT.

WELL, I WAS LOW ON MONEY AND MY TRUCK BROKE DOWN,
I WAS ON MY WAY TO THE LOST AND FOUND.
SO I TOOK IT TO A DEALER, I SAID, "MAKE IT RUN,
WELL, I AIN'T GOT NO MONEY BUT I'VE GOT ME A GUN."

I SAID, "YOU ROBBED ME BEFORE, SO I'M ROBBING YOU BACK,
AND IF IT DON'T PUT YOU STRAIGHT, IT'LL PUT YOU ON THE RIGHT TRACK."
WELL, I AIN'T NO DEVIL AND I AIN'T NO SAINT
BUT I CAN TELL A DEALER BY THE COLOUR OF HIS PAINT.

DELIVER YOUR CHILDREN TO THE GOOD, GOOD LIFE,
GIVE 'EM PEACE AND SHELTER AND A FORK AND KNIFE.
SHINE A LIGHT IN THE MORNING AND A LIGHT AT NIGHT
AND IF A THING GOES WRONG, YOU'D BETTER MAKE IT RIGHT. (right!)

DELIVER YOUR CHILDREN TO THE GOOD, GOOD LIFE,
GIVE 'EM PEACE AND SHELTER AND A FORK AND KNIFE.
SHINE A LIGHT IN THE MORNING AND A LIGHT AT NIGHT
AND IF A THING GOES WRONG, YOU'D BETTER MAKE IT RIGHT. (right!)

IF YOU WANT GOOD EGGS, YOU GOTTA FEED THAT HEN,
AND IF YOU WANNA HEAR SOME MORE, WELL, I'LL SING IT AGAIN.
