The Door

 

Little sister of mine fetch me some water

I am thirsty but my legs they cannot move

Oh Father of Fathers our mother's growin' old and weak

Little sister of mine fetch me some water

 

Little sister of mine bake us some bread

I hunger for food but my legs they cannot move

Oh Father of Fathers our mother's growin' old and weak

Little sister of mine bake us some bread

 

            Push me and pull me away, away to the door

 

Little sister of mine, younger than I

Me weight is heavy, hard to carry am I

Oh Father of Fathers our mother's growin' old and weak

Little sister of mine, younger than I

 

            Push me and pull me away, away to the door

 

I'll wear my wings some day and you a crown

And we'll walk hand in hand on hallowed ground

Yes, we'll be together today and forever more

Little sister of mine please help me to the door

 

            Push me and pull me away, away to the door

            Push me and pull me away, away to the door

            To the door...
