  POPULAR BALLAD: "NEVER FORGET YOUR PARENTS"  

A young man once was sitting
    Within a swell cafe,
The music it was playing sweet--
    The people was quite gay.
But he alone was silent,
    A tear was in his eye--
A waitress she stepped up to him, and
    Asked him gently why.

         (Change to Minor)

He turned to her in sorrow and
    At first he spoke no word,
But soon he spoke unto her, for
    She was an honest girl.
He rose up from the table
    In that elegant cafe,
And in a voice replete with tears
    To her he then did say:

                    CHORUS

Never forget your father,
    Think all he done for you;
A mother is a boy's best friend,
    So loving, kind, and true,
If it were not for them, I'm sure
    I might be quite forlorn;
And if your parents had not have lived
    You would not have been born.

A hush fell on the laughing throng,
    It made them feel quite bad,
For most of them was people, and
    Some parents they had had.
Both men and ladies did shed tears.
    The music it did cease,
For all knew he had spoke the truth
    By looking at his face.

         (Change to Minor)

The waitress she wept bitterly
    And others was in tears
It made them think of the old home
    They had not saw in years.
And while their hearts was heavy and
    Their eyes they was quite red.
This brave and honest boy again
    To them these words he said:

                    CHORUS

Never forget your father,
    Think all he done for you;
A mother is a boy's best friend,
    So loving, kind, and true,
If it were not for them, I'm sure
    I might be quite forlorn;
And if your parents had not have lived
    You would not have been born.

                                    Franklin P. Adams.
