May the Children Sing

Guillem Ramis i Moneny, an Ally from Majorca since about ten years ago, suggested that we disseminate this song "that can be useful for peace."

May the Children Sing, by José Luis Perales, 1992

May the children sing, may they raise their voice, may they make the world listen,
may they bring their voices together and reach the sun, the truth is within them.
May the children sing, who live in peace, and those who suffer pain,
may they sing for those who will not sing because their voice has been turned off.

I sing for them to let me live,
I sing for Mommie to smile,
I sing for the sky to be blue,
and I for them not to spoil the sea for me.

I sing for those who have no bread,
I sing so they’ll respect the flower,
I sing for the world to be happy,
I sing to not hear guns.

May the children sing …

I sing for the garden to be green,
and I for them not to turn the sun off on me
I sing for the one who doesn’t know how to write,
and I for the one who writes love poems.

I sing for my voice to be heard,
and I to see if I can make them think,
I sing because I want a happy world,
and I in case someone wants to listen to me.

May the children sing …

Que canten los niños
