Two Little Orphans Lyrics

Two little children a boy and a girl
Sat by and old church door
The little girls feet were as brown as the curl
That fell on the dress that she wore

The boy's coat was faded and hatless his head
a tear shone in each little eye
Why don't you run home to your mama I said
And this was the maidens reply

our mama's in heaven; they took her away
and left Jim and I all alone
We came here to sleep,till the close of the day,
For we have no Mama or home

We can't win our bread--too little she said,
Jim's five and I'm only seven,
There's no to love us and Papa is dead,
And our darling Mama's in Heaven.

Our Papa was lost out at sea long ago,
We waited all night on the shore,
For he was a life-saving Captain you know,
But he never came back any more.

Then Mama got sick; angels took her away,
Away to that home warm and bright,
"They'll come for my darlings'she told us some day,
Perhaps they are coming tonight.

"Perhaps there's no room tonight" she said,
for two little ones to keep,
Then placing her arms around little Jim's neck,
She kissed him;they both fell asleep

The Sexton came early to ring the Church bell,
And found them beneath the white snow,
The Angel's made room for two orphan's to dwell,
In Heaven with Mama that night

And found them beneath the white snow

Mommy got sick angels took her away
To dwell in those matins so bright
She said she would come for her children someday
And I guess she's coming tonight

The sexton came early to ring the church bell
And found them beneath the snow white
The angels made room for the orphans to dwell
Up in heaven with their mommy that night
