A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss.
As sung by Dan Nash.

As we pass along life, how many we see,
And many there are to be found
Who are never contended where'er they may be,
And so constantly come to the ground.
They always are changing for this and for that,
Though for reasons they're quite at a loss.
. It brings to our mind the saying so pat,
A rolling stone gathers no moss.

So always stick firmly to what you've in view.
Don't be dazzled by glitter and gloss,
Remember the maxim, so old yet so true,
A rolling stone gathers no moss.

Some people there are, they go in for trade,
And scarcely stay at it a week,
For they quickly will say a mistake they have made.
And for something quite different seek.
And then, when at last, they make a fresh start,
It's just the same thing as before.
A Year hardly goes, they again from it part,
So these people they live and die poor.-Chorus.

So with love, a young man falls into its snare,
And tries to obtain a young wife,
But of constancy true lie does not take care.
So single remains all his life.
Many ladies we know the same pathway will trace,
How seldom we find one that's staid,"
She's quickly attracted by every fresh face,
She lives and she dies an old maid.-Chorus.

Now there is a something to learn from my song,
And for all there's a little advice.
You must all persevere if you want to make way
On the troublesome highway of life.
Keep pushing on firmly, though slow it may be,
And on this you may safely depend,
Though trials may arise you soon will be free,
And success will be yours in the end.-Chourus.
