    If grandpa was alive right now there ain't no tellin' what he'd have to say
    Why he had fifteen wives a living with him all when he finally passed away
    And though I've just got two now mama that's enough to keep me satisfied
    I haven't had a son yet but the good Lord knows the three of us have tried
    Cause the Pennsylvania Dutch that we once spoke has been forgotten
    And the Mormon way of life is almost gone
    But now and then we gather down in Salt Lake City to
    raise our voices in a joyful song
    And we sing Heavenly Father Holy Mother keeper of our
    children tiller of the land
    Take us to the river in a horse and buggy
    Give us our salvation help us make our stand

    No ma'am I did not go to see the Reverend Brigham Young while I was there
    But I'm sure glad to know you wanted him to mention my name in a prayer
    I hope he did not preach about the young folks that
    refused to make the change
    Cause if he did I'm sure I got a little more than my share of the blame
    Cause the Pennsylvania Dutch...
    Heavenly Father Holy Mother...
    Heavenly Father Holy Mother...
    Heavenly Father Holy Mother...
    Heavenly Father Holy Mother...
