Little Brown Children

Bob Connelly
Language: English



Little Brown Brothers, please throw down your arms,
Little Brown Brothers, please throw down your ams,
We don't wish to harm you,
Just merely disarm you,
Little Brown Brothers, please throw down your arms.

Little Brown Brothers, you've been Oh, so bad,
Naughty, so naughty, so naughty and bad,
You're just like our children,
So be good, sweet children,
Little Brown Brothers, please stop being bad.

And don't pay attention to what you might see,
I mean all those bodies that hang from the trees,
They were bad brown boys,
But you are good brown boys,
Oh children, dear children, ignore what you see.

Llttle Brown Brothers, why do you act so?
These temper tantrums do hurt us, you know.
There's love in our heart,
Yet you keep us apart,
Little Brown Brothers, why do you act so?

Oh Little Brown Children, we came to your aid,
And from the cruel Spaniard, you know you've been saved.
We opened our heart,
And you tore it apart,
Don't force us to force you to make you be saved.

And don't pay attention to what you might see,
I mean all those bodies that hang from the trees,
They were bad brown boys,
But you are good brown boys,
Oh children, dear children, ignore what you see.

Little Brown Brother, you know you are wrong,
Little Brown Brother, admit that you‘re wrong.
Although you want freedom,
You don't deserve freedom,
For freedom belongs to the white and the strong.

So children - reform, before it's too late,
You might cause us to act in a manner we hate,
We don‘t wish to hurt you,
We came here to nurse you,
Children - reform, before it's too late.

And don't pay attention to what you might see,
I mean all those bodies that hang from the trees,
They were bad brown boys,
But you are good brown boys,
Oh children, dear children, ignore what you see.
