"Save the Children" is a 1971 song written by Al Cleveland, Renaldo Benson and Marvin Gaye and issued on Marvin's 1971 album, "What's Going On". While not issued as a single in the U.S., the song was issued as a single by the Tamla-Motown label in the UK where it peaked at #41 on the Charts in December of 1971, whereas the other major US single releases initially failed to make a dent on the other side of the Atlantic. The song was a continuation of the message "What's Going On" delivered, about love, this time, for the children. Marvin later joked on the liner notes of the album "not let (this song) influence anyone". Marvin recorded both a spoken word recitation of the song and a vocal version mixing the two vocals together featuring Marvin's soft-spoken vocals on one side and his expressive tenor on the other. The song would later be covered by Diana Ross in a medley featuring the jazz song, "Brown Baby", on her 1973 album, "Touch Me in the Morning". Marvin sung this song briefly while touring Europe in 1976 including the song as part of his "What's Going On" medley.
