Thank God For Kids    (1972)

If it weren't for kids
Have you ever thought
There wouldn't be no Santa Claus?
Or look what the stork just brought
Thank God for kids.

And we'd all live in a quiet house,
Without Big Bird or a Mickey Mouse,
Or Kool-aid on the couch
Thank God for kids.

Thank God for kids
There's magic for awhile,
A special kind of sunshine in a smile.
Do you ever stop to think or wonder why?
The nearest thing to heaven is a child.

Daddy how does this thing fly?
And a hundred other where's and why's.
I really don't know but I try
Thank God for kids.

When I look down
In those trusting eyes
That look to me I realize
There's a love that I can't buy
Thank God for kids.

When you get down on your knees tonight
And thank the Lord for His guiding light
And pray they'll turn out right,
Thank God for kids.
Thank God for kids.
