"Children Say" is a song written by Mark King, Mike Lindup and Phil Gould. After a series of successes with the hits "Lessons in Love", "Running in the Family", "To Be With You Again" and "It's Over", it was the final single to be issued from their album, Running In The Family, in Autumn 1987. The song made the top 30 in the UK, but it was most successful in the Netherlands where it reached the top 10.

Promo video[edit]

The video of the song was the first of Level 42's career not to feature the brothers Phil and Boon Gould, who had recently left the band. The video was shot in Paris. The Gould brothers are also missing from the sleeve of the single.
