Lyrics

1. It was poor little Jesus, yes, yes,
He was born on Christmas, yes, yes
And laid in a manger, yes, yes.
Wasn’t that a pity and a shame? Lord, Lord,
Wasn’t that a pity and a shame?

2. It was poor little Jesus, yes, yes;
child of Mary, yes, yes;
didn’t have a cradle, yes, yes;
wasn’t that a pity and a shame, Lord, Lord,
wasn’t that a pity and shame?

3. It was poor little Jesus, yes, yes;
they nailed him to the cross, Lord, yes, yes;
they hung him with a robber, yes, yes;
wasn’t that a pity and a shame, Lord, Lord,
wasn’t that a pity and shame?

4. It was poor little Jesus, yes, yes;
he’s risen from darkness, yes, yes;
he’s ‘scended into glory, yes, yes;
no more a pity and a shame, Lord, Lord,
no more a pity and shame?
