Oh Poor Child (Song Quotes)
The following are song lines that are disturbing and heart tugging as it talks about children.. About a child who's life is about to be cut off before he's even born, about a child who is being ignored and left behind just because of his disability, a child who's a product of divorced parents, and a child who will grow up in an unhappy home.
Oh little baby you'll never cry
Nor will you hear the sweet lullaby
Oh unborn child if you only knew
Just what your mama is planning to do
You're still a-clingin' to the tree of life
But soon you'll be cut off before you get ripe.
Oh unborn child beginning to grow
Inside your mama that you'll never know
Oh tiny bud that grows in the womb
Only to be crushed before you bloom.
UNBORN CHILD/Seals & Croft
People come for children and take them for their own
They all seem to pass me and I am left alone
I know they like to take me but when they see I'm blind
They always take other child and I'm left here all alone.
No mother's arm to hold me or sooth me when Icry
Sometimes it gets so lonely I wish that I could die
I'd walk the streets of heaven where all the blinds can see
And just like all the other kids there'll be a home for me.
NOBODY'S CHILD/Karen Young
I don't wanna play house, it makes my mama cry
'Cause when she played house, my daddy said goodbye..
I DON'T WANNA PLAY HOUSE/Tammy Wynette
Our little boy is four years old and quite a little man
So we spell out the words we don't want him to understand
Watch him smile,he thinks it's Christmas or his fifth birthday
And he thinks C-U-S-T-O-D-Y spells fun or play
Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today
Me and my little J-O-E will be goin' away
You're sleeping son I know, but really this can't wait
I wanted to explain before it gets too late
For your mother and me love has finally died
This is no happy home but God knows how I tried..
Sleep on you haven't heard a word, perhaps it's just as well
Why spoil your little dream, why put you through the hell...
MY BOY/Elvis Presley
Don't cry daddy, daddy please don't cry
Daddy you still got me and little Tommy
Together we'll find a brand new mommy
Daddy, daddy please laugh again
Daddy ride us on your back again..
DON'T CRY DADDY/Elvis Presley
