Do You Know Where Your Children Are Tonight?
Words and Music by Dottie Burman

Chorus:

Do you know where your children are tonight?
Are they runnin' into trouble or gettin' in a fight?
Maybe they're just doin' fine and spendin' time together.
Do you know where your children are tonight?

When Johnny was a baby,
You listened for his cry.
You knew just from the sounds he made
If he was wet or dry.
Then Johnny started talkin'.
You thought he was so cute.
He also started walkin'.
You were often in pursuit.
You always felt exhausted
From chasin' him around.
He talked so much you sometimes wished
He'd never make a sound.

Now Johnny is a teenaged boy
He rarely speaks to you.
He'll talk for hours with his friends
About the things they do.
And when it's time to clean his room
Or get some homework done,
He suddenly will disappear.
He's off to have some fun.

Chorus:
Do you know where your children are tonight?
Are they runnin' into trouble or gettin' in a fight?
Maybe they're just doin' fine and spendin' time together.
Do you know where your children are tonight?

Now Johnny is a married man.
He has a loving wife.
They have a lively little boy,
The center of their life.
They tell you that he walks and talks,
He's growin' very fast.
It won't be long, they'll sing this song,
As we did in the past.

Chorus:
Do you know where your children are tonight?
Are they runnin' into trouble or gettin' in a fight?
Maybe they're just doin' fine and spendin' time together.
Oh, sometimes you wish that they were young again.
Maybe they're just doin' fine and spendin' time together.
Do you know where your children are tonight?
Oh, do you know where your children are tonight?
