D.A.R.E. Song

Lyrics by Michael Wagman, Music by John Andrew Tartaglia

THE WORLD’S A DIFFERENT PLACE

WHERE LIFE’S BECOME A RACE

AND UNLIKE THE WORLD OF PAST

OUR KIDS GROW UP TOO FAST

‘CAUSE WHAT THEY SEE IN STORE

IS THREATS OF BOMBS AND WAR

AND THAT DEADLY GAME THEY’RE TAUGHT

THAT HAPPINESS IS BOUGHT

SO THE CHILDREN OF TODAY

HAVE NO TIME FOR CHILD’S PLAY

AND THEY FEEL THEY’RE ALL ALONE

EVEN STRANGERS IN THEIR HOME

SO TO HIDE THEIR PAIN AND TEARS

THEY DESTROY THEIR YOUTHFUL YEARS

GIVING UP ON LOVE AND HUGS

AND ESCAPING INTO DRUGS

AND IS WE SAY THAT WE WON’T HELP

BECAUSE THE PROBLEM ISN’T MINE

THEN IT’S MORE THAN JUST A SHAME

OUR LACK OF CARING IS A CRIME… SO

(chorus)

DARE TO KEEP A KID OFF DRUGS

DARE TO KEEP A KID OFF DOPE

DARE TO GIVE A KID SOME HELP

DARE TO GIVE A KID SOME HOPE…

HELP US

(repeat chorus)
