Barbra Streisand: Children Will Listen

For some reason I just love children and children related things. Barbra gives a great presentation to this song. Such an important message, that children will listen. I’m proud to say that Barbra went to my school! Although my school refused to take a generous donation from her since they felt it wasn’t a right source to get money from, and they didn’t approve of the path she had chosen. B”H nowadays there are outlets for frum girls to express their talents so that they don’t have to go to Hollywood or the outside for a chance to shine.

Warning: Kol Isha


How do you say to your child in the night
Nothing is all black but then nothing is all white?
How do you say it will all be alright
When you know that it mightnt be true?
What do you do?
Careful the things you say,
Children will listen.
Careful the things you do,
Children will see.
And learn.
Children may not obey,
But children will listen.
Children will look to you
For which way to turn,
To learn what to be.
Careful before you say,
Listen to me.
Children will listen.
Careful the wish you make,
Wishes are children.
Careful the path they take,
Wishes come true,
Not free.
Careful the spell you cast,
Not just on children.
Sometimes the spell may last
Past what you can see
And turn against you...
Careful the tale you tell.
That is the spell.
Children will listen...
How can you say to a child whos in flight,
Dont slip away and I wont hold so tight?
What can you say that no matter how slight wont be misunderstood?
What do you leave to your child when youre dead
Only what ever you put in its head
Things that your mother and father had said
Which were left to them too.
Careful what you say, children will listen
Careful you do it too, children will see and learn.
Guide them but step away,
Children will glisten.
Temper with what is true
And children will turn,
If just to be free.
Careful before you say,
Listen to me.
Children will listen...
Children will listen!
Children, children will listen

great message, we deffinately have to be careful with what we say and do. They learn through example.

And what you said about having an outlet, I'm also happy there are some, for ex. I went to a girls song and dance that was beautiful
