Pat Benatar SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN Lyrics

Last updated: 12/15/2012 08:59:36 AM

Sweet Melissa, I often pray for you
I hope your suffering was brief
I hope the angels that watch over all little children
Came for you and took you someplace beautiful and sweet
Aahh..
Suffer The Little Children

Dear Melissa, I often think of you
Everytime I hold my baby in my arms
I say a prayer for your mama and daddy too
I know they miss you, miss you since you're gone

Suffer The Little Children
At the hands of evil men
No baby dolls, no teddy bears
No lullabies for them
Every mother's nightmare
Will it ever end
Suffer The Little Children
At the hands of evil men

You who done the deed better do some prayin' too
Better hope that God's forgivin' like they say
Cause somewhere, somebody keeps a list
Of the evils that men do
An' your name's right up there
I heard `em say
Aahh..

Suffer The Little Children
At the hands of evil men
No baby dolls, no teddy bears
No lullabies for them
Every mother's nightmare
Will it ever end
Suffer The Little Children
At the hands of evil men

From the album "Wide Awake In Dreamland"
Written by: Neil Geraldo & Pat Giraldo

no more victims! | Reviewer: stancahaz | 12/14/12

Today 20 children were shot dead in their classroom. SO HOW LONG are we going to let the NRA and their money tell the rest of us what to do? How many MORE innocent victims? How many MORE dead children? IT"S TIME FOR REAL GUN CONTROL,. GUNS don't kill people- but´╗┐ gun-owners DO kill people, and the gun-owners need to have their guns strictly controlled! The time is NOW. President Obama: Pleases use this terrible tragedy to help our Congress act on gun control! Rest in Peace little ones. May your slaughter and your sacrifice not be in vain

haunted by this song | Reviewer: Karen | 9/21/04

Haven't heard this whole song in years! It still haunts me. Benatar
still rocks, and I don't think she'll ever get old. A song that
should always be available, and theme songs for fighting child abuse.
