Nobody's Child

 

Lyrics:

As I was slowly passing

an orphan's home one day,

and stopped and stop there for a moment

to watch the children play.

Alone a boy was standing

and when I asked him why,

he turned with eyes that could not see

and he began to cry.

 

I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child.

Just like the flowers I'm growing wild.

there's no mummy's kisses and no daddy's smile.

Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's child.

 

People come for children an take them for their own

But they all seem to pass me and I'm left here all alone

I know they'd like to take me but when they see that I'm blind

They always take some other child and I'm left behind

 

No mother's arms to hold me or soothe me when I cry,

sometimes I feel so lonesome. I wish that I could die.

I'll walk the streets of heaven where all blinds can see.

 

And just like for the other kids

it will be a home for me.

 

I'm nobody's child,

I'm nobody's child.

Just like the flowers

I'm growing wild.

I got no mummy's kisses

I got no daddy's smile.

Nobody wants me,

I'm nobody's child.
