Words and Music by Master Adams.

Don't be angry, mother,
Let thy smiles be smiles of joy;
Don't be angry, mother,
Don't be angry with thy boy.
Years have flown since we traversed
The dark and stormy sea.
Whilst your boy, quite broken-hearted,
Ne'er has ceased to think of thee.

Don't be angry, mother, mother,
Let the world say what it will;
Tho' I don't deserve thy favor,
Yet I fondly love thee still.
We have lived and loved together,
Then our hearts never knew a pain;
But forgive me, mother, mother,
Oh, forgive thy boy again.

Pray remember, mother, mother,
I've been kneeling at thy feet;
And I'm dreaming of thee nightly
While reclining in my sleep.
But forgive me, mother, mother,
It will ease thy heart of pain;
But forgive me, mother, mother,
Oh, forgive thy boy again.
