Lonnie Donegan - Nobody's Child lyrics

I was slowly pa**ing an orphan's home one day I stopped there for a moment just 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 I'm like a flower just growing wild No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smile Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's child People come for children and take them for their own But they all seem to pa** me by and I am left alone I know they'd like to take me, but when they see I'm blind They always take some other child and I am left behind No mother's arms to hold me or soothe me when I cry Sometimes it gets so lonely here, I wish that I could die I'd walk the streets of Heaven where all the blind can see And just like all the other kids, there'd be a home for me Spoken: I just can't seem to figure out why the folks all pa** me by 'Cause I know that it's true that God takes little blind children with Him in the sky And they tell me that I'm oh-so-pretty and they seem to like my big curls of gold But then they take some other little child and I am left here all alone I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child I'm like a flower just growing wild No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smile Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's child
