CRY OF A LONELY HEART, by            
First Line: I want a boy, a small boy
Last Line: I want a boy . . . Who needs me as I need him.
Subject(s): Boys


I want a boy, a small boy,
A not-so-very-tall boy,
A boy of ten, eleven, or perhaps, thirteen.
I want a boy to talk with,
To take a long walk with,
Then home again, to chatter over what we've seen.

A gay little, square boy,
A sure-of-playing-fair boy.
A boy that I can chum with, and mother, and pet.
A boy who will love me
And never weary of me . . .
D' you know a boy like this, that I might get?

A motherless, tired boy,
An ambition-fired boy.
A boy that I can pamper, in every small whim.
A hungry little, sad boy . . .
A dirty little, bad boy . . .
I want a boy . . . who needs me as I need him.
