lyrics

I was walking through West Hollywood
When a homeless man steps up to me
He said "Brother, I got a message from Jesus,
That you gots to know, if you wanna be free."

I said "Solid, won't you lay it on me,
'Cause you know I'll take all the help I can get."
Then he looked into my eyes,
And it took me by surprise,
That a man could be so wise
Here's what he said (he said)

Suffer the little children unto me,
Suffer, let 'em come to me,
Suffer the little children,
'Cause you gots to let them in,
If you wanna be free

I was walking through the desert
And the lonely places, feeling afraid
When a voice in the night,
Like a beacon burning bright,
Set my heart alight
Here's what it said (it said)

Suffer the little children unto me,
Suffer, Let 'em come to me,
Suffer the little children,
'Cause you got to let them in,
If you wanna be free

So if the message didn't get through yet
I'm gonna share with you my epiphany
You see we all are God's children
And we've got to treat each other like a family
With love and respect
It's time to demonstrate that we all can elevate
No more judgement, no more hate
Set your heart to tolerate, you've got to

Suffer the little children unto me,
Suffer, Let 'em come to me,
Suffer the little children,
'Cause you got to let them in,
If you wanna be free
