TWO LITTLE ORPHANS

Two little children, a girl and a boy sat on the steps by the church door.
The little girl’s feet were as brown as the curls that lay on the dress that she wore.

The little boy’s coat was all tattered and torn, a tear shown in each little eye.
Why don’t you run home to your mother said I, and this was the maidens reply.

Our Mama’s in Heaven got taken away, left Jimmy and I all alone.
We come here to sleep at the end of the day, for we have no mother, no home.

We can't earn our bread, we’re too little she said, Jimmy's just five and I'm seven,
There's no to love us our Papa is dead, and our darling Mama's in Heaven.

Our Papa was drowned on the sea long ago, we waited all night on the shore.
For he was a life-saving Captain you know, but he never came home anymore.
Mama got sick Angels took her away to dwell in a mansion so bright,
She said she’d come back for her darlings someday, perhaps she’s coming tonight.

Perhaps there's no room up in Heaven, she said for two little orphans to keep,
She placed her hand under Jimmy's little head she kissed him , and they both fell asleep.

The preacher came early to ring the church bell he found them beneath the snow white.
The Angels made room for two orphans to dwell in Heaven with mama that night.

Our Mama’s in Heaven got taken away, left Jimmy and I all alone.
We come here to sleep at the end of the day for we have no mother no home.
