Eyes will be nchin bad,
E're you'll ever find a poem
At this time for pore old Dad.
No, it isn't wilful in 'cm,
Them that write of Mother dear;
That there's never notice taken
Of her old man sfttin' near.
No, it's never meant to slight him,
But it looks n little sad,
All the bouquets made for Mother,
Not a bloom for pore old Dad.
True, our Mother watched above us
'Till her dear old eyes would ache;
But old Dad he humped to feed us
'Till his back would nearly break.
Mother crooned above tho cradle,
Gave devotion, all she had;
tStill there wasn't any circuit
At this time far pore old Dad.
Now don't take one line from Mother,
When you write the Soul's sweet
But if there's a word for Father,
Now and then it won't bo wrong.
Poor old soul, he's bent nnd wrinkled,
And I know 'twould-mako him glad
If, while you're praisin' Mother,
Something's said for pore old Dad.
