Don't Forget Your Sister at Home.
Copyright, 1897, by Smith Piano Co.
So many home and mother songs are written every day,
But there's one that's been forgotten all along.
I grasp my pen and wonder what is best for me to say.
For your sister is the subject of my song:
She always stands up for you in right and in the wrong,
When the old folks wrath in torrents on you falls;
Your faults she tries to hide, and you learn to say ere long
That your sister is the best friend after all.
So don't forget your sister that's at home,
She's the dearest friend in all the world to you;
She can make your whole life bright, and make sunshine out of night,
Your sister so loving, so true.
As we walk 'long the street each day, why scores of girls we meet,
Some are rich and some are ragged and forlorn,
Remember and respect them though they're outcasts in the street,
And remember you've a sister or your own;
All your troubles you'll confide when you're bowed down with care;
Her advice she'll give you if you'll only hear;
The angel of your heart, and she's always on your side,
That's a sister ever loving fond and true.- Chorus.
