"Jimmy Brown The Newsboy" lyrics

Jimmy Brown The Newsboy

I sell the morning papers sir
My name is Jimmy Brown
Everybody knows that I am
A newsboy of the town

You will hear me yelling "Morning star"
As I run along the street
I have no hat upon my head
No shoes upon my feet
I have no hat upon my head
No shoes upon my feet

I'm awful cold and hungry sir
My clothes are torn and thin
I wander about from place to place
My daily bread to win

Never mind sir how I look
Don't look at me and frown
I sell the morning papers sir
My name is Jimmy Brown
I sell the morning papers sir
My name is Jimmy Brown

My father died a drunkard sir
I've heard my mother say
And I'm helping her
As I journey on my way

My mother always tells me sir
There's nothing in the world to lose
I'll get a place in heaven sir
To sell the gospel news

So never mind sir how I look
Don't look at me and frown
I sell the morning papers sir
My name is Jimmy Brown
I sell the morning papers sir
My name is Jimmy Brown
