"HOW THE WOLRD HAS CHANGED"

Verse 1
I remember at the table
Fifteen children and just one daddy,
Now that daddies don't want children,
Or at most just one or two.
I remember how they used
The old church house for a school.
Now the schools won't let a Bible
Pass inside their chilly doors.

Chorus
How the world has changed
In only one generation.
They say it's for the better,
But they know it's growing cold,
And salvation is slipping through their fingers
As they turn their backs and close their ears
To what the prophets all have told.

Verse 2
I remember when the babies
Were delivered by the doctors.
Now the doctors all are surgeons,
Making doors where doors don't go.
I remember when the children
Were instructed by their parents.
Now the TV is the parents,
Teaching violence and crime.

Chorus
How the world has changed
In only one generation.
They say it's for the better,
But they know it's growing cold,
And salvation is slipping through their fingers
As they turn their backs and close their ears
To what the prophets all have told.

Chorus [key change]
How the world has changed
In only one generation.
They say it's for the better,
But they know it's growing cold,
And salvation is slipping through their fingers
As they turn their backs and close their ears
To what the prophets all have told.

Yes, as they turn their backs and close their ears
To what the prophets all have told.
--Oo-oooo-oooo.
