Give The Kid A Break

Give the kid a break

Keep the kid alive

Keep him hopping, keep him hoping

Way down deep inside.

There needs to be a secret place,

A hiding place, a being place

A place where no one sees your face

The one you keep inside.

The kid who still plays hopscotch

And stickball and jumps rope;

the one who needs a hug at night

and sometimes cannot cope.

Give the kid a break,

Keep the kid alive

You need him there

to be alright

Way down deep inside.
