exibições 107

Motherless children's is a hard time, when their mother is dead,
motherless children's is a hard time, when their mother is dead.
they are given out in the cold, got nowhere to go,
motherless children's is a hard time, when their mother is dead,

CHORUS
Orphaned children's is a hard time in this world,
orphaned children's is a hard time in this world.
Sister does the best she can, but she really don't understand,
orphaned children's is a hard time in this world.

Brother won't feed you like mother will, when the mother's dead,
brother won't feed you like mother will, when the mother's dead.
You may ask for a piece of bread, you are told to go to bed,
motherless children's is a hard time, when their mother is dead,

CHORUS

Friends won't feed you like mother will, when the mother is dead,
friends won't feed you like mother will, when the mother is dead.
They will tell you what to do, but they'll turn the back on you,
motherless children's is a hard time, when their mother is dead,

CHORUS
