Everything has gone wrong and the nights are so long
Since you left us down here all alone
Everyday seems a year and the whole world is drear
It seems now I just can't go on.
Standing close by my side is our own little pride
He misses your lullaby tune
And his big dark blue eyes swell with tears as he cries
Wont Mummy come back to us soon?
I planted sweet lilies for you dear of
One on your grave neath the pines in the dawn
And our baby each day kneeled with me as I prayed
In memry of you dear old pal.
The angels will love you and keep you
I know, 'cause they needed some one just like you
To brighten the heaven around God's great throne
And add a new star to the blue.
I'll watch 'er the baby and tend him with care
And each night by his bedside I'll kneel
And if tears do not stop me I'll sing him to sleep
In mem'ry of you dear old pal.
All your big stakes and treasures I placed them away
To me they mean more than a world
And the baby's first curl to your picture I've tend
In mem'ry of you dear old pal...
