Somebody killed little Susie 
The girl with the tune
Who sings in the daytime at noon
She was there screaming
 Beating her voice in her doom
But nobody came to her soon

A fall down the stairs 
Her dress torn
Oh the blood in her hair
A mystery so sullen in air
She lie there so tenderly  Fashioned so slenderly 
Lift her with care,
Oh the blood in her hair

 Everyone came to see
The girl that now is dead
So blind stare the eyes in her head
And suddenly a voice from the crowd said
This girl lived in vain
Her face bear such agony, such strain 

But only the man from next door
Knew Little Susie and how he cried 
As he reached down
To close Susie's eyes
She lie there so tenderly  Fashioned so slenderly 
Lift her with care
Oh the blood in her hair

It was all for God's sake
For her singing the tune
For someone to feel her despair 
To be damned to know hoping is dead and you're doomed 
Then to scream out
And nobody's there 

She knew no one cared 

 Father left home, poor mother died
 Leaving Susie alone 
Grandfather's soul too had flown 
No one to care
Just to love her
How much can one bear
 Rejecting the needs in her prayers 

 Neglection can kill
Like a knife in your soul
Oh it will
 Little Susie fought so hard to live
She lie there so tenderly  Fashioned so slenderly 
Lift her with care
So young and so fair
