Mighty like a rose

Sweetest little girly
everybody knows
not sure what to call her
but she's mighty like a rose
looking at her mammy
with eyes of golden brown
makes you feel like heaven will soon be coming round
there she is a'sleeping
in her little base
think i see the angels lookin' through the lace
when the night is falling
when the shadows creep
then they come in on tip-toe
to kiss her
in her sleep
Sweetest little girly
everybody knows
not sure what to call her
but she's mighty like a rose


My mother used to sing this to me. I wish I could find a recorded version.

Try a Paul Robeson disc. It was one of his best known but not about a "girls",a boy I think.
