Give The Kid A Break

This song is by 1927 and appears on the album ...ish (1988).

Little boy lost in games of make believe
Making up names and friends who play for free
Too many people in the real world
Telling him to be seen but never heard
He's having a tough time keepin' up at school
Tough enough just remembering all the rules
He's learning the first few facts of livin'
Little mistakes stay unforgiven
And trouble comes when you don't know what you've done

Why don't you give (Give a little bit)
Give the kid a break

Little girl lost in dreams and magazines
Everyone laughs they call her "Movie Queen"
Nobody shows no understanding
Nobody shows her dreams that can be
Made to come true she's stuck with making do

Why don't you give (Give a little bit)
Give the kid a break
All the hard (all the hard, hard times)
The Hard times can wait

Why don't you give (why not give)
Give a little bit (give the kid)
For the future's sake (give the kid)
Give the kid a break

Too many kids are wondering "What's the use?"
Every time they ask they get abused
Too many questions go unanswered
Too many kids are taking chances
Trying to find one good reason why

Why don't you give (Give a little bit)
Give the kid a break
All the hard (all the hard, hard times)
The hard times can wait

Why don't you give (why not give)
Give a little bit (give the kid)
For the future's sake (give the kid)
Give the kid a break
