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...
