Take good care of what you've got
My father said to me
As he puffed his pipe and baby B
He dandled on his knee
Don't fool with fools who'll turn away
Keep all good company.

Oo hoo oo hoo
Take care of those you call your own
And keep good company.

Soon I grew and happy too
My very good friends and me
We'd play all day and Sally J
The girl from number four
And very soon I begged her won't you
Keep me company.

Oohoo oohoo oohoo oohoo
Come marry me for evermore
We'll be good company.

Now marriage is an institution sure
My wife and I our needs and nothing more
All my friends by a year
By and by disappear
But we're safe enough behind our door.

I flourished in my humble trade
My reputation grew
The work devoured my waking hours
But when my time was through
Reward of all my efforts my own
Limited company.

I hardly noticed Sally as we
Pated company
All through the years in the end it appears
There was never really anyone but me.

Now I'm old I puff my pipe
But no-one's there to see.

I ponder on the lesson of
My life's insanity
Take care of those you call your own
And keep good company.
