    Oh dear, I'm so tired and so lonesome
    I wonder why mommy don't come
    She told me to close my pretty blue eyes
    And when I awoke she'd be home.

    She said she was going to see Grandma
    Who lives by the river so wide
    And I guess my mommy fell in there
    And probably she won't be home tonight.

    I guess I'll go out and find papa
    I expect he has stopped in at the store
    It's a big pretty store filled with bottles
    And I wish he wouldn't go there anymore.

    For he is so sick when he comes home
    He stumbles and falls on the stairs
    And once as he went in the palor
    he kicked at my poor little chair.

    But I love him, I guess i'll find him
    And i know he will gladly come home
    Then it won't be so dark or so lonely
    while waiting for mama to come.

    So out in the night went the baby
    The sweet little blossom so fair
    With eyes as bright as the morning
    And a head full of yella-golden hair.

    She pushed the heavy bar room door open
    And her papa in the corner she spied
    Down the hall her little feat pattered
    And soon she was close by his side.

    Oh papa, she cried as she reached him
    I know that the music is sweet
    But it's suppertime now, oh papa
    Little blossom wants something to eat.

    A moment the red eyes gazed wildly
    Down into her face sweet and fair
    And just as a demon possessed him
    He kicked off the back of a chair.

    A moment a second was over
    The work of a fein was complete
    the poor little innocent blossom
    Lay crumbled and crushed at his feet.

    Then in swept the lay so majestic
    And said with your life you must pay
    For only a fein or a mad man
    Could murder a child in that way.

    A moment the baby's life trembled
    Then poor little blossom was dead...
