I hope this is the one you mean: (And if New Zealand had a fair use provision in its copyright act, this would constitute a fair use, being a small portion of a work):
Father, dear father, come home with me now |
The clock in the steeple strikes one|
You said you were coming right home from the shop|
As soon as your day's work was done|
The fire has gone out, the house is all dark|
And mother's been watching since tea|
With poor brother Benny so sick in her arms|
And no one to help her but me.|
CHORUS (Becoming a choir)
Hear the sweet voice of the child|
Which the night winds repeat as they roam.
(I can add the second and third verses if you like, but I thought I'd better check that it was the right song first.
