Oh, my parents' careful teaching went astray;
I discovered, to my sorrow-yes, yes, time and time again,
That the golden rule was turned another way.

But always do the other man, or he'll do you.

But quickly found that method out of date.
I saw I was mistaken, he would do me if he could,
In a manner I am sorry to relate.
