Child of Hunger
(Original lyrics for Track #189200)


VERSE 1
It was the third of Decem-ber
It was the fourth of June.
It was the fifth of November
under a darkened moon.
And the child, and the child
died of hunger
And the child, and the child
died of hunger.

VERSE 2
It was the third of December
he was sent to his bed
deprived of his supper
for something he had said
And the child, and the child
felt the hunger
And the child, and the child
felt the hunger

CHORUS
There never was a day
when he knew the words to say,
there never was a day
when he knew a better way.
There never was a day
when the child was allowed his say
There never was a day
they did not knock him to his knees
oh oh no.

VERSE 3
The next time it happened
was the fourth of June.
This time is was a question
that he'd asked too soon.
And the child, and the child,
cried of hunger.
And the child, and the child,
cried of hunger.


CHORUS
There never was a day
when he knew the words to say,
there never was a day
when he knew a better way.
There never was a day
when the child was allowed his say
There never was a day
they did not knock him to his knees
oh oh no.

VERSE 4
He refused to surrender
as he tried it on his own.
Then on the fifth of November,
he stood his trial all alone,
And the child, and the child,
died of hunger.
And the child, and the child,
died of hunger.
