By Michael Jackson and Maurice Durufle — as to “Pie Jesu” intro

From the Album “History – Past Present and Future” (1995)

Wikipedia link – “History” album

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
Neglecting 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

    Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  11. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  12. Sie sind für Gäste zugelassen Blogging? Ich möchte einen Beitrag auf das Motiv zu schreiben.
