American Old Time Song Lyrics: 28 Just Think Of Your Mother
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 28
JUST THINK OF YOUR MOTHER.
Copyright, 1890, by M. Witmark & Sons.
Words by F. B. Hawkins. Music by L Witmark.
Never speak unkindly of your mother,
For you will regret it If you do.
Don't let all your thoughts be of another.
When you know she always thinks of you.
A mother's love is sacred, pure and tender,
And never can be bought at any price;
Let not a thought, a word offend her,
And always list to this, her good advice:
"Be upright and honest, my boy, " she would say,
"And think of the loved ones ever;
If any temptations should your thoughts annoy.
Just think of your mother at home, boy."
Though her heart may be heavy and weary.
She ever tries to wear a smile of joy,
And her words are always bright and cheery,
All her hope And love is for her boy,
When she's gone you'll never find another.
It matters not how close he is or near,
E'en though It be a sister or a brother,
There's none so true as mother, none so dear.-Chorus.
