There's No One Too Poor to Be Kind.
Copyright, 1898, by D. Miiller.
Words and Music by Kitty Rampone.

Down town, amid the bustle of the city's busy strife,
Down town, in front of dear old Trinity,
A poor old beggar woman in the sunset of her life
Asked alms that she might ease her misery.
A newsboy dropped a penny in the woman's feeble hand,
The action caught a Wall Street broker's eye,
Unto the lad he said, I'm sure you're just as poor as she,
The little newsboy then made this reply:

There's no one too poor to be kind.
Though many may not have much money;
For the heart long ago was designed
To help to make other hearts sunny.
Though the coat may be worn and the pockets all torn,
A way to help oft you may find,
To the one who is down, give a smile, not a frown.
There's no one too poor to be kind.

The broker dropped a dollar in the beggar woman's lap.
Then pressed another in the newsboy's hand.
He then went to his office, where he met a luckless man.
To whom he had loaned money on his land.
"I cannot pay the int'rest on the mortgage, sir, to-day;
I hope you'll not foreclose," thus said the man.
The broker, touched by what the little newsboy said, replied;
"Don't worry, you may pay it when you can." - Cho.
