BEGGAR'S SONG, by            
First Line: Good people keep their holy day
Last Line: And tender feelings in your heart.
Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Begging & Beggars


Good people keep their holy day,
They rest from labour on a Sunday;
But we keep holy every day,
And rest from Monday until Monday.

And yet the noblest work on earth
Is done when beggars do their part:
They work, dear ladies, on the soft
And tender feelings in your heart.
