Lyrics:
Always Take Mother's Advice [Version (a)]:

Always take mother's advice
She knows what is best for your good
Let her kind words then suffice
And never speak hasty or rude

Remember that she is the nearest
To you in this world, she is dearest
At your downfall, her grief is severest
So don't cause her sorrow or pain

Always take mother's advice
She knows what is best for your good
Let her kind words then suffice
And always take mother's advice

Honor your mother so dear
You'll never know her worth 'til she's gone
Respect her gray hair while she's here
You'll be sad when she leaves you alone

On earth you will never have another
In this weary world there's no other
And God only gives you one mother
So cherish and love her most dear

Always take mother's advice
She knows what is best for your good
Let her kind words then suffice
And always take mother's advice
 
The Song:

This can be found in the collection of manly hymns, Hymns For Him, because what's more manly than taking mother's advice.

This is actually a real sheet music song, written by Jennie Lindsay in 1884. (Lyrics and picture above.)
