Cy Coben - Mel Foree 

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 COULD DIE.
IŽD 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 THE FLOWERS
I'M, I'M 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.
