nobody’s child

I was slowly passing an orphan’s home one day
And 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

People come for children and take them for their own
But they all seem to pass 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 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

I’m nobody’s child
I’m nobody’s child
Just like a flower
I’m growing wild

No mommy’s kisses
And no daddy’s smile
Nobody wants me
I’m nobody’s child

I just can’t seem to figure out
Why the folks all pass 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’m 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
