Teach Your Children (Music Video of the Week)

Music Video of the Week, 23 May 2022

Playing For Change – TRANSCEND Media Service

Live in Australia – Song by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

This powerful live performance features Tula, Roberto Luti and the PFC Band. Years ago, when we started recording Songs Around The World, we never imagined we would be growing a global movement supporting musicians and music education across the globe, but this is the power of music. Today’s live performance embodies all that we believe in: soulful music with an inspiring message helping us to move forward as a human race, one heart and one song at a time.


LYRICS
You, who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so, become yourself
Because the past is just a goodbye

Teach your children well
Their father’s hell did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick’s the one you’ll know by

Don’t you ever ask them, “Why?”
If they told you, you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you

And you (Can you hear?) of tender years (And do you care?)
Can’t know the fears (And can you see?)
That your elders grew by (We must be free)
And so, please help (To teach your children)
Them with your youth (What you believe in)
They seek the truth (Make a world)
Before they can die (That we can live in)

And teach your parents well
Their children’s hell will slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick’s the one you’ll know by

Don’t you ever ask them, “Why?
If they told you, you will cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you
