Words and Music by Charles Graham.

A friend of mine took a sweet girl for his wife,
Promised to cherish And love her through life,
But soon he neglected his nice, pleasant home-
Out late at night with fast friends he would roam;
At last, when a wee, darling babe came to bless,
Pleaded his wife through her tears and distress,
He kissed her, and vowed that a change she would see-
Their home would be just as it used to be.

Just as it used to be in days gone by,
Proud of him now is she, she won't tell why:
Kindest of husbands he, no happier wife than she,
Just as it used to be in days gone by.

That home of theirs now is a paradise bright,
Wife and sweet baby. his precious delight;
He never neglects her he promised to love,
Her comfort now is all pleasures above,
A smile lights the eyes where a tear was before;
Let the world dazzle, it tempts him no more-
Contented and proud with his babe on his knee,
Their home now is just as It used to be.- Chorus.
