Radio 61, side B, track 3: “Children Of The Night” by Richard Marx

Richard Marx - Children Of The NightOh, Richard Marx, just in time for the holidays, here’s a fun tune about children living on the streets prostituting themselves to survive.

Hey, any time we get to hear a song by you it’s a gift, don’t get me wrong, but when you’re going full-on Richard Marx, it can sometimes be a real bummer, you know?  It’s bad enough when you’re just singing about heartache, but when you’re singing about some kid whose mom told him or her they were a mistake?  Come on, Richard Marx, that ain’t fair.

“Children Of The Night”

All that I know in my life I have learned on the street

No magic carpet, no genie, no shoes on my feet

Will I wake up from this nightmare
Fear that chills me to the bone

Though I may be one of many

I feel so all alone

We are the children of the night

We won’t go down without a fight

Our voices strong, our futures bright

Thanks to what we learned from you
We’ve grown into the children of the night

Left by my father with only this scar on my face

Told by my mother that no
You were just a mistake

I have tasted my own hunger
Sold my body to survive

So they’ll pay ta scratch the surface

But they can’t touch what’s insiiiiiiiiide

We are the children of the night

We won’t go down without a fight

Our voices strong, our futures bright

Thanks to what we learned from you
We’ve grown into the children of the niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

Whooooooooaaaahhh!

<awesome Richard Marx jam>

How I long for something better

Than this life I know too well

Lord, I know I’m bound for heaven

‘Cause I’ve done my time in heeeeeell

We are the children of the night

Children of the night
We won’t go down without a fight

Whoooooooah
Our voices strong, our futures bright

Thanks to what we learned from you
We’ve grown into the children of the niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight, yeeeah

<awesome Richard Marx jam>
