Lyrics verse 1:
AS I SIT HERE
IN THIS OLD FOLKS HOME
MY HAIR IS WHITE AS SNOW,
I REMEMBER BACK WHEN
I WAS YOUNG AGAIN,
HOW EV'RYTHING WAS JOLLY.

Chorus:
SISTER DID THE JIG
AND BROTHER BEAT THE DRUM
AND BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY,
BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY.

verse 2:
WELL, THEM KIDS OF MINE
HAVE ALL GROWN UP,
THEY WRITE
EV'RY NOW AND THEN,
AS I READ THE LETTERS
IT BRINGS MEMORIES
OF ALL OUR FUN
AND FOLLY.

Chorus:
SISTER DID THE JIG
AND BROTHER BEAT THE DRUM
AND BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY,
BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY.

verse 3:
THAT WIFE OF MINE,
GOD REST HER SOUL,
SHE'S GONE ON BEFORE ME.
I'LL BET SHE TOLD THE LORD
ABOUT THE TIMES
THE HOUSE WAS FILLED
WITH FOLLY.

Chorus:
SISTER DID THE JIG
AND BROTHER BEAT THE DRUM
AND BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY,
BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY.

verse 4:
THE MAN ACROSS THE HALL
IS A LONELY MAN,
HE NEVER HAD A FAM'LY,
SO HE ASKED ME
TO TELL HIM
ALL ABOUT MY KIDS
WHEN HE'S FEELING
MELANCHOLY.

Chorus:
SISTER DID THE JIG
AND BROTHER BEAT THE DRUM
AND BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY,
BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY.

verse 5:
EV'RY NIGHT I PRAY
FOR THEM KIDS OF MINE,
I WISH THEY WERE BACK
WITH ME.
BUT BEFORE I DIE,
LORD, LET ME SEE
A SIGHT
THAT MAKES ME JOLLY.

Chorus:
SISTER DID THE JIG
AND BROTHER BEAT THE DRUM
AND BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY,
BABY ROCKED HER DOLLY.
