"20 Beautiful Children"
by Dave Martin

Daddy, other kids were talking
About the news on the TV.
I don't understand what happened
Can you explain it to me?

In some place called Connecticut
Something happened with a man
And a gun and lots of kids
In a school that looked like mine.

20 beautiful children,
That's what the President called them.
Oh, I have so many questions.
Oh, I have so many questions.

Mother tell me why it happened.
Can Jesus give us a reason?
Daddy, why is the President weeping?
Daddy, what's that in your eye?

Who will get their Christmas presents?
Will their stockings still be filled?
Do you think they'll go to heaven?
What does it mean to be killed?

Did you know these things have happened
In other schools across the nation?
How long until it happens
To the kids at my school?


So I listened to the questions
Of my children as they spoke,
And I wondered about the parents
Of the children who were gone.

And I thought about their children,
About the ones who still remain,
And I thought about their questions.
And I thought about their questions.


Where's my sister why's she missing?
Who will sleep in my brother's bed?
Mommy have you eaten?
Is there anything I could have said?

Did I forget to say I love you?
Remember how we fought this morning?
Why did Jesus have to take him?
Will I ever see him again?

Daddy, why did this have to happen?
Why did this man have a gun?
Daddy, who will stop all the bad men
From hurting everyone?

Can't we just take away the bullets?
Can't we just stop making the guns?
Why can't we take away the bullets?
Why cant we just stop making the guns?

For those 20 beautiful children.
For those 20 beautiful children.
For those 20 beautiful children.
If not for those 20 beautiful children,
Then who?
