Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Feed the Children (Eric Bogle)
"Feed the Children" by Eric Bogle, appears on his album "Voices in the Wilderness", 1991, also on his "Singing the Spirit Home," 1987. I transcribed the following words from a sound sample at CDNOW. Some phrases are unclear.

If the future's born with every birth,
How much is a child's life worth?
Feed the children of the earth,
Or the future dies with them.
And have you seen the madmen
Who strut the world ... stage (?)
Threatening our destruction
As they prance and preen and rage
Rattlin' nuclear (?) sabers
At humanity's...

[Not to be confused with another song called "Feed the Children" by Tom Paxton.]
