Representative Text

1 Dinna forget the old folks,
They’ve aye been kind to you;
They’ve shared your joys and sorrows
With loyal love and true;
When cares on life’s rough pathway
Have caused you tears and pain,
They’ve always held you closer
To their dear hearts again.

Refrain:
Dinna forget the old folks,
Be gentle, good, and true,
And kind unto the old folks,
For they’ve been kind to you.

2 Dinna forget the old folks,
But with affection’s ways,
Bring back to them the sunshine
And smiles of other days;
The joy of your affection
Will help to smooth away
The furrows on their foreheads,
And light their fading day. [Refrain]

3 Dinna forget the old folks,
Their wintry locks revere,
And make them glad and happy
While yet they linger here;
Some day they’ll have to leave you,
Their sun is nearly set,
Dinna forget the old folks,
But make them happy yet. [Refrain]
