I'M GLAD I TOOK MY MOTHER'S ADVICE
 
div
 
Mother told me that I should
Do my utmost to be good
Sound advice to me she gave
Taught me how I should behave
I'm glad I took my Mother's advice
Mother's advice, Mother's advice
'Never kiss the boys.' said she
So now I let the boys kiss me.

Up the trees I like to climb
Feeling glum it is sublime
Mother said, 'Whatever you do
Don't let the boys climb trees with you.
I'm glad I took my Mother's advice
Mother's advice, Mother's advice
They don't climb trees with me, oh no
They help me up and wait below.

When I was in bed one night
We had visitors, that's right
Ma said, 'Don't let Cousin John
See you with your nightie on.'
I'm glad I took my Mother's advice
Mother's advice, Mother's advice
I said with a modest cough
'When John comes in… I'll stay in bed.'
