My Child Lyrics

Take from Blood Brothers - 1995 London Cast Recording Album
Hello Mrs. J. How are you? Mrs. J.? Anything wrong?
I had it all worked out. With one more baby we could have managed. But not with two, the welfare have already been on to me.
Twins? You're expecting twins?
How quickly an idea, planted, can Take root and grow into a plan. The thought conceived in this very room Grew as surely as a seed, in a mother's womb
Give one of them to me. Please, Mrs. Johnstone. Please.
Are y'...are y' that desperate to have a baby?
Each day I look out from this window I see him with his friends, I hear him call, I rush down but as I fold by arms around him He's gone. Was he ever there at all?
I've dreamed of all the places I would take him The games we'd play, the stories I would tell. The jokes we'd share, the clothing I would make him. I reach out, but as I do, he fades away.
If my child was raised in a palace like this one He wouldn't have to worry where His next meal was comin' from.
His clothing would be Supplied by George Henry Lee
He'd have all his own toys And a garden to play in
He could make too much noise Without the neigbors complainin'
Silver trays to take meals on
A bike with both wheels on?
And he'd sleep every night In a bed of his own.
He wouldn't get into fight.s He'd leave matches alone And you'd never find him Effin' and blindin' And when he grew up He could never be told To stand and queue up. For hours on end at the dole He'd grow up to be
A credit to me
I would still be able to see him everyday, Wouldn't I?
An'... An' you would look after him, Wouldn't y'?
I'd keep him warm in the Winter And cool when it shines I'd pull out his splinters Without making him cry I'd always be there If his dream became a nightmare
My child My child My child
Mrs. J. we must make this a binding agreement
In the name of Jesus, the thing was done, Now there's no going back, for anyone, It's too late now for feeling torn There's a pack been sealed. There's a deal been born.
