Copyright, 1877. by H. T. Martin.

There's many a song with many a motto,
Each containing good advice;
Obey their teachings, too, we ought to,
Though great temptations us entice.
To sing a new song I'll endeavor,
And one, I hope, will please a few:
Make all the friends you can, but never
Give up the old friends for the Lew.

Then listen to the motto that I give you,
You'll find a good one it will prove and true:
Make all the friends you can, always lend a helping hand,
But don't give up the old friends for the new.

You may he poor in life's beginning,
A man you meet just like yourself;
His friendship you succeed in winning,
he helps you on the road to wealth.
And when you've won it do not sever
The ties that bind him still to you;
He helped you in your need, so never
Give up the old friends for the new.- Chorus.

To those who may be married
A word or two I have to Bay;
By fairer faces be not carried
Completely off. and led astray.
In this age of quick divorces
Men love their wives a year or two,
Then wander into other courses-
Give up the old wife for the new.- Chorus.
