"Little Paper Boy" lyrics

Little Paper Boy

Out on the corner
Standing so bold
Stood a little paper boy
So hungry and cold

And as the crowd
Came passing by
These words he said
With tears in his eyes

"Please buy a paper from me
So I can get me something to eat
My clothes are ragged
No shoes on my feet"
Said the little paper boy
There on the street

"Out in this cold
Wide world all alone
I have no place
On this earth to call home

I haven't had the chance
That other kids had
I have no mother
Nor even a dad"

"So please buy a paper from me
So I can get me something to eat
My clothes are ragged
No shoes on my feet"
Said the little paper boy
There on the street

Early next morning
As the crowd passed by
The little boy was gone
And they wondered why

They started searching
And then found him dead
He died with the papers
Under his head

No one was there
His body to claim
There he was lying
But he felt no pain

Now he has gone up
To heaven we know
The little paper boy
Who died in the snow

There you have it, friends
