Here's my transcription from a sound sample at CD Baby, from an album by Rik Barron:
NO PLACE FOR CHILDREN (excerpt)
1. [I] read in The Times—that's a paper that counts—
'Bout a war in a place that I can't pronounce.
Men designed bombs that look just like toys.
They blow off the arms of four-year-old boys.
CHORUS: God, come here yourself. Don't send Jesus, your son,
'Cause this place ain't no place for children to come.
[They] cry their eyes blind till they can't see the sun.
Well, this place ain't no place for children to come.
2. I know a nurse who worked for babies no older than three.
Each carries the curse that they call HIV.
In their earthly birth from their mothers they're torn.
Now I know why they cry when they're born.
3. A long time ago, in a heavenly plan,
You sent us your son. Look what we did to him.
We turned the Garden of Eden to a desert bone dry,
But one thing that grows is the number who die.
