Do You Know Where Your Children Are (Original Version)

Lyricist: MJ    Composer: MJ
Father comes home from work and he's scared to death
Mother cries out again, it's no charade
Father runs to the table, he says what's going on
Mother cries desperately, our little baby's gone

Do you know where your children are
Because it's now 12 o'clock
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are
Do you know where your children are
Because it's now 12 o'clock
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are

She wrote that she is tired of step-daddy using her
Saying that he'll buy her things, while sexually abusing her
Just think that she's alone somewhere out on the street
How will this girl survive? She ain't got nothing to eat!

Do you know where your children are?
Because it's now 12 O'clock,
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are
Do you know where your children are
Because it's now 12 o'clock
And they're somewhere out on the street
Just imagine how scared they are

Save me (from this livin' hell)
Save me ('cus that I'm gonna do)
Save me ('cus I'm tired and unfed (I 'm mad?)
Save me ('cus this because of you (Hoo)
Save me ('cus I'm on the bed)
Save me ('cus I don't want no more)
Save me ('cus terror arrived)
Save me ('cus I don't wanna feel)
Save me (Hee hee)

Now she's on the move, she's off to Hollywood
She said she wanna be a star she heard the money's good
She gets off from the train station a man is waiting there
"I'll show you where the money is girl just let down your hair"

He's takin' her on the streets of Sunset Boulevard
She's selling her body ha girl that will take you far
The police come 'round the corner somebody up there had told
He's arresting this little girl who's only 12 years old
