MY MOTHER'S ROSARY Lyrics: Sam M. Lewis - Music: George W. Meyer Al Jolson Betty Kelly with the Phil Spitalny Hour of Charm orchestra and choir There's an old-time melody I heard long ago - Mother called it her rosary; she sang it soft and low Without any rhyme, without any prose - I even forget how the melody goes. But ten baby fingers and ten baby toes - She'd watch them by the setting sun, And when her daily work was done, She'd count them each and every one; That was my Mother's rosary.
