Let's Build The Wall
Let's build us a wall to keep everyone out Let's build us a wall even if they scream and shout, To the heavens it must rise to protect us one and all Then we all will be finally defended, so let's build us a wall.

See Babies Crying
I see babies crying
For their older brothers
And no one will ever know
If they'll be home again.
But babies don't you cry
Dry those frosted eyes
Look up in the heavens and say
We need you GOD today.
