  Traveling Wilburys vol.3 sessions, Wilbury Mountain Studio, Bel Air, LA CA - April 1980  

As i was slowly passin'
An orphans home today
I stopped for just a little while
To watch the children play
A lone boy standin'
And when i asked him why
He turned with eyes that could not see
And he began to cry.

I'm nobody's child, i'm nobody's child
Just like a flower i'm growin' wild
No mama's arms to hold me, no daddy's smile
Nobody wants me, i'm nobody's child.

In every town and village 
There are places just like this
With rows and rows of children 
Babies in their cribs.
They've long since stopped their cryin'
As no one ever hears
And no one there to notice them
Or take away their fears.

Nobody's child, nobody's child
Just like a flower they're growin' wild
Got no mama kissin' and no daddy's smile
Nobody wants them they're nobody's child.

Nobody's child, they're nobody's child
Just like a flower they're growin' wild
No mama's kisses and no daddy's smile
Nobody wants them, they're nobody's child
Nobody wants them, they're nobody's child.  up
