TAKE GOOD CARE OF MOTHER.
Copyright, 1883, by Will H. Kennedy.
Arranged and sung by Harry Kennedy.

Take good care of mother, for she's getting old and feeble,
Her hair that once was golden is turning into gray,
Her face that once was beautiful is getting full of wrinkles
Take good care of mother, for she soon will pass away;
Treat her just as tender as you would a little flower,
Press her to your bosom as she did you when a babe.
Kiss her and caress her ev'ry day and ev'ry hour.
For you'll miss dear mother when she is lowly laid.

Chorus.
Take good care of mother, nurse her ev'ry hour.
Treat her just as tender as you would a little flower,
Kiss her and caress her ev'ry night and morn.
For you'll miss dear mother when she's gone.

Take good care of mother, for you'll miss her when she's sleeping
In the quiet country churchyard, where Summer blossoms bloom ;
All through the live-long day the merry birds are sweetly singing,
And the lovely flowers fill the air with sweet perfume;
Oh. how sad and lonely we will pass the weary hours,
When the angels take her homeward to that land that's free from pain
In the little church-yard then she'll sleep amongst the flowers.
Never more to see her or to speak to her again.

Chorus.
Take good care of mother, nurse her ev'ry hour.
Treat her just as tender as you would a little flower.
Kiss her and caress her ev'ry night and morn.
For you'll miss dear mother when she's gone.
