Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Sad Sad Story
 

 



Well for years she withstood the bad life at home
Till she couldn't stand the pain
Then some boys and the streets stole her away
And the drugs ...they brought her to shame




But she didn't want her small baby boy
That was born just yesterday
So somewhere out there in the dark of night
His momma just threw him away



She didn't much care that his little life
Came from heaven way up above
All that she wanted or cared about
Were the drugs that she'd come to love



So tiny and small that wee little one
Lay there in that alley so cold
But the angels were watching and gathered round
His tiny body to hold



So softly they sang him a lullaby
Till his dear little eyes shut tight
Then tender they winged him back to God
To become a small angel so bright



Meanwhile back there in that cheap motel
Lulled by the drugs she craved
His mother left this sad old world
To end up in a paupers grave



So nobody won on that hand that was played
By fate in the game called life
Where the wheel of time keeps turning round
And we'll all forget that night



When two precious souls just slipped away
That thoughtfulness might have saved
For if only someone has shown they cared
Perhaps we'd have two less graves





Tell me what is this old world coming to
Has mankind grown so cold
That nobody shed a single tear
When their story it was told



Sure the local TV news... they covered it
The newspapers they did too
But all that publicity came to late
Still it looks like somebody knew


For today two concrete angels
Stand out in the sleet and the rain
And the plaque on the bottom simply states
For two angels without a name



Yes, that sad young girl in the paupers grave
Was once somebody's innocent young girl
Not just one more statistic you'll find written down
On the page of tomorrows world
