Where Do The Children Play

Cat Stevens

 DGDGDGDGCEmCEmADGDGDGDG
                                         Well I think it's fine, building jumbo planes
 DGDG
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train
 DGDG
Switch on summer from a slot machine
 DGDG
Yes, get what you want to if you want 'cos you can get anything
 EmAEmA
I know we've come a long way, we're changing day to day
 EmADGDGDGDG
But tell me, where do the children play?       
Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass
For your lorryloads pumping petrol gas
And you make them long, and you make them tough
 CGCG
But they just go on and on, and it seems you can't get off
Oh, I know we've come a long way
We're changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?
 CEmCEmADGDGDGDG
                                     When you crack the sky, scrapers fill the air
Will you keep on building higher
'til there's no more room up there?
 CGCG
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
 CGCG
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?
 Em7A
I know we've come a long way
 Em7A
We're changing day to day--hey

But tell me, where do the children play?

Do doot do, do de do doot do

Do de do doot do do de do do
