A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss.
Sung by Harry D'Esta.

Now we all do our but in this world to get on,
While some think they're awfully clever;
If you heed what they say, you may go the wrong way,
Don't be led by your friends in the future.
Some say, "go abroad, and a fortune you will make,"
While others have roamed to their loss;
so you had last as well now remain where you are.
For a rolling stone gathers no moss.

Chorus.
Now let us take heed through the path that we lead.
This world is a wide one to cross;
So you may just as well now remain where you are,
For a rolling stone gathers no moss.

Now in lands far away, I've heard people say,
That diamonds like stars can be found;
And that diamonds like stars are in the ground hid away.
With thousands of searchers around;
If its gold you would seek you must first persevere.
For the ocean's a wide one to cross;
So you inav just as well now remain where you are,
For a rolling stone gathers no moss.-Chorus.

Now in roaming around there can never be found
The comforts we find at home;
Then why do we leave friends behind us to grieve
And wander away alone.
My advice now to you, believe me 'tis true,
If you wander 'twill be at your loss;
so mind what I say, stay at home, don't go away,
For a rolling stone gathers no moss.-Chorus.
