Some Folks

Lyrics

(Stephen Foster)

1. Some folks like to sigh
Some folks do, some folks do
Some folks long to die
But that’s not me nor you

Refrain
Long live the merry, merry heart
That laughs by night and day
Like the Queen of Mirth
No matter what some folks say

2. Some folks fear to smile
Some folks do, some folks do
Others laugh through guile
But that’s not me nor you. Refrain

3. Some folks fret and scold
Some folks do, some folks do
They’ll soon be dead and cold
But that’s not me nor you Refrain

4. Some folks get grey hairs
Some folks do, some folks do
Brooding o’er their cares
But that’s not me nor you Refrain
