Nobody's Child ()
Authors: Cy Coben, Mel Foree; Lead vocal: Tony Sheridan

As I was slowly passing
An Orphan's home one day,
I stopped for just a little while
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 am growing wild.
I've got no mammy's kisses,
I've got no, no daddy's smile.
Nobody wants me,
I'm nobody's child.

No mammy's arms to hold me
Or soothe me when I cry,
'Cause sometimes I feel so lonesome,
I wish that I colud die.
I'd walk the streets of heaven
Where all the blind can see,
And just like all other kids there'd be a home for me.

I'm nobody's child,
I'm nobody's child,
Just like the flowers
I am growing wild.
I've got no mammy's kisses,
I've got no, no daddy's smile.
Nobody wants me,
I'm nobody's child.
