Oh Stay At Home My Lad

by
 Oh stay at home, my lad, and plough 
The land and not the sea, 
And leave the soldiers at their drill, 
And all about the idle hill 
Shepherd your sheep with me.
Oh stay with company and mirth And daylight and the air; Too full already is the grave Of fellows that were good and brave And died bacause they were.
