Mother

         
She was just an old-fashioned mother,
   She did not pretend to be "smart",
To care for her home and her dear ones,
   Was the wish that was first in her heart.

We were raised by the old-fashioned methods,
   So sparsely employed today,
And when we so richly deserved,
   We were "spanked" in the old-fashioned way.

She taught us the old-fashioned virtue,
   "A good name is far better" she'd say,
"Than all of the wealth of the nation.
And truth is the best any day."

She believed in the old-fashioned Bible,
   She trusted in old-fashioned prayer,
She told us that Jesus would hear us,
   If we'd speak any time any where.
