Two little children a boy and a girlSat by and old church doorThe little girls feet were as brown as the curlThat fell on the dress that she woreThe little boys clothes were all tattered and tornThey shone beneath his blue eyesWhy don’t you go home to your mommy I saidAnd this was the maidens replyMommy’s is heaven angels took her awayLeft jim and I all aloneWe’ve no one to love us daddy is deadAnd our darling mother is goneMommy got sick angels took her awayTo dwell in those matins so brightShe said she would come for her children somedayAnd I guess she’s coming tonightThe sexton came early to ring the church bellAnd found them beneath the snow whiteThe angels made room for the orphans to dwellUp in heaven with their mommy that night
