Sometimes I feel like a motherless childSometimes I feel like a motherless childSometimes I feel like a motherless childLong way from my homeSometimes I wish I could flyLike a bird up in the skyOh, sometimes I wish I could flyFly like a bird up in the skySometimes I wish I could flyLike a bird up in the skyCloser to my homeMotherless children have a hard timeMotherless children have-a such a hard timeMotherless children have such a really hard timeA long way from homeSometimes I feel like freedom is nearSometimes I feel like freedom is hereSometimes I feel like freedom is so nearBut we’re so far from home
