They say we are the Lord's children
I don't say that ain't true
They say we are the Lord's children
I don't say that ain't true
But if we all the same like each other
Ooo-well'well, why do they treat me like they do?

What's wrong with the Lord's children?
I don't understand
What's wrong with the Lord's children?
I don't understand
Some men got no use for woman
Ooo-well-well, some women got no use for man

I wanna live on children
Soon I would just like to see
I wanna live on children
I said I would just like to see
What will become of us
Ooo-well-well, by nineteen and fifty-three

Some of the good Lord's children
Some of them ain't no good
Some of the good Lord's children
Some of them ain't no good
Some of them are the devil
Ooo-well-well, and wouldn't help you if they could

Some of the good Lord's children
Is about to need some prayer
Some of the Lord's children
Needs about to kneel and pray
You serve the devil in the night
Hoo-well-well, and serve the Lord in the day.
