Little John

As little John went out to play
On a warm, beautiful, and sunny day
He heard his mother to him say
"I love you, my little John."

And then quite tall her Johnny grew
His graduation cap he threw
She said "My son, I say adieu, 
and I love you, my little John."

He visited her in the town of St. Beth
Around her wrapped the arms of death
She uttered with her final breath
"I love you, my little John..."
