Lyr. Add: SOME FOLKS
Stephen C. Foster 1855

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

Chorus-
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.

Chorus-

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.

Chorus-

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

Chorus-

5
Some folks toil and save,
Some folks do, some folks do;
To buy themselves a grave,
But that's not me nor you.

The DT has only the first three verses.
The thread "Some Folks Do" has incorrect title and only part of the song.

A late copy of the sheet music (1883) is at American Memory.
Levy sheet music has the 1855 sheet music, "Foster's Melodies No. 29, Some Folks."
