Save the Children  Marvin Gaye

...SAVE THE CHILDREN... by Marvin Gaye

*from 'What's Going On' (1971)*
[Am] I just want to ask a question;
Who really cares?
To save a world in de-[E7]spair?
Who really [Dm]cares?[E7]
Verse 1:
There'll come a [Bm]time,
[Am] When the world won't be singin',
[Bm] Flowers won't grow,
[Dm] Bells won't be ringin';
[Gm] Who really cares?
Who's willing to [Dm]try,
[Am] To save a [Fm6]world,
That's [Dm]destined to [G13]die?
Verse 2:
When I [Bm]look at the world,
[Am] It fills me with sorrow,
[Bm] Little children today,
Are [Dm]really gonna suffer tomorrow.
[Gm] Oh what a shame,
[Dm] Such a bad way to live,
All [Am]who is to [Fm6]blame,
[Dm] We can't stop [G13]livin'.
Chorus 1:
[Bm] Live, live for life,
[C#m] But let live everybody,
[Adim] Live life for the children,
Oh, for the [Dm]children.
You see, [G7]let's save the children,
Let's save all the children.
[Cmaj7] Save the babies,
Save the [Dm]babies.
If you wanna love, you got to,
Save the [Cmaj7]babies,
You will save the [Dm]babies,
All of the children.[G7]
Bridge 1:
But...[Dm]who really cares?
[Em] Who's willing to try?
Yes, to [E7]save a world,
[Am] Yeah, [E7]save our sweet world.
[Am] Save a world,
That is [Dm]destined to [G7]die.
[Em] Oh...[Dm]oh..
La, la, la,
La, la, la, la.
[Em] Oh...oh,
[Dm] Dig it everybody.
