MOTHER AND DAD Lee Morse 1928 Lee Morse & her Blue Grass Boys recorded June 25th 1928 In our house just down the way, We're makin' preparation for a happy day. Hear my dear old mother croon, There's a great day comin' soon! See my daddy smilin', like a boy, Waitin' for some candy or a brand new toy! And we watch them, John and I, Tenderly as days go by. For mother and dad, I love them, They're the best pals that I've had! Mother and dad, just imagine When they were a girl and a lad! In the parlour, in the family album, Tin types worth a prince's ransom! Mother in her crinolines and laces, Daddy lookin' like he's makin' funny faces! Mother and dad as sweethearts, Funny hats and quaint old frocks. Mother and dad as partners, Sharing all of life's hard knocks! But the sweetest picture's on its way, It's liable to be taken any day, Of mother as a grandma, Gee, my dad'll make a great grandad! (yodelling) Ah, mother and dad, I love them, They're the best pals that I've had! Mother and dad, just imagine When they were a girl and a lad! Now in the parlour, in the family album, Are tin types worth a prince's ransom! Mother in her crinolines and laces, Daddy lookin' like he's makin' funny faces! Mother and dad as sweethearts, Funny hats and quaint old frocks. Mother and dad as partners, Sharing all of life's hard knocks! But the sweetest picture's on its way, It's liable to be taken any day, Of mother as a grandma, Gee, my dad'll make a great grandad! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2013)
