You've, no doubt, heard the song of "Father, dear, come home,"
And the fate of hungry little Ben, who sent for him to come"
How the old man used to "smile," and cause the family pain;
But he let up for a little while, and then got drunk again.

We've given him up for gone, he's lying in the lane,
And almost everybody knows the old man's drunk again.

He takes his morning nip, and loafs about the door;
He told his family more than once that he would drink no more;
But then he would forget from "benzine "to abstain:
The police, they would come and say, "The old man's drunk again- Chorus.

He'd smash poor mother's nose, and upset brother Ned,
And drive us all into the street, then tumble into bed;
And when he'd be asleep, we'd go back and remain,
Until he woke and left the house to come home drunk again.- Chorus.

"O father, dear, come home, stop drinking like a sow;
You've drank away the beds and stove, don't swallow up the cow;
Oh! don't abuse the boys, and cause poor mother pain,
Or we'll rebel and go for you, when you get drunk again." - Chorus.
