Freda Payne – Cherish What Is Dear To You (While It's Near To You) lyrics
Chorus:
Cherish what's dear to you while it's near to you, don't wait 'til it's gone.
Cherish what's dear to you while it's near to you, don't wait 'til it's gone.

When I was a baby mama rocked me in her arms whenever I cried.
She picked me up when life knocked me, she was always there by my side.
She said 'One, one day there'll be a man in your life, to take the place of a mother.
Now he, he'll give you joy, a happy life, but swear by this advice:

Chorus

I strayed away from mama's advice, and lost the only man in my life.
I never gave enough of myself, so he found love with somebody else.
Now my lover is gone.? Drove him to the arms of another's love.
I lost a love was warm and tender, 'cause I failed to remember:

Chorus

(Musical interlude)

Repeat Chorus twice
