I'm[D] nobody's child,nobody's[G] child,
Im[A7] like a flower,just growing[D] wild,
No[D] mammys kisses,no daddy's[G] smile,
Nobody[A7] wants me I'm nobody's[D] child.
I was slowly passing an orphan's home one day,
And stopped there for a moment,to watch the children play,
Aline a boy was standing,and when I asked him why,
He turned with eyes that could not see,and he began to cry,
People come for children and take them for their own,
But they all seem to pass me by,and leave me all 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.
Im nobodys child,,,,
No mother's arms to hold me or sooth me when I cry,
Sometimes it gets so lonely here I wish that I could die,
I walk the streets of heaven where all the blind can see,
And just like for the other kids ther'd be a home for me,
No mammys kissis,no daddys smile,nobody wants me im nobody's child.
