As I was slowly passing an orphans home today
I stopped for just a little while to watch the children play
A lone boy standin', 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 a flower I'm growin' wild
No mama's arms to hold me, no daddy's smile
Nobody wants me, I'm nobody's child"

In every town and village
There are places just like this
With rows and rows of children
And babies in their cribs

They've long since stopped their cryin'
As no one ever hears
And no one's there to notice them
Or take away their fears

Nobody's child, they're nobody's child
Just like a flower they're growin' wild
Got no mommy's kisses, no daddy's smile
Nobody wants them, they're nobody's child

Nobody's child, they're nobody's child
Just like a flower, they're growin' wild
No mama's kisses and no daddy's smiles
Nobody wants them, they're nobody's child
Nobody wants them, they're nobody's child
