SOME FOLKS DO Stephen Foster words lyrics best favorite American folk song sing along songs Video & Performance 2016 by Charles E. Szabo Some folks like to sigh, Some folks do, some folks do; Others 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. Some folks fear to smile, Some folks do, some folks do; Others laugh thro' guile, But that's not me nor you. Chorus: 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. Stephen Collins Foster (July 4, 1826 – January 13, 1864), known as "the father of American music", was an American songwriter primarily known for his parlor and minstrel music. Foster wrote over 200 songs; among his best-known are "Oh! Susanna", "Camptown Races", "Old Folks at Home", "My Old Kentucky Home", "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair", "Old Black Joe", and "Beautiful Dreamer". Many of his compositions remain popular more than 150 years after he wrote them. His compositions are thought to be autobiographical. He has been identified as "the most famous songwriter of the nineteenth century", and may be the most recognizable American composer in other countries.

Lilting melody, penned by Stephen Foster. Sung by The Robert Shaw Chorale, from their album 'Stephen Foster Favorites'.
A classic song, given the A Capella treatment. Stephen Foster is, in my opinion, an all-time great.His melodies though often appearing simple, are textbook examples of form and structure and contain all the elements such as auxiliary and passing notes, key changes and are just very catchy.What a legend that man is. The album "Keeping The Old Songs Alive" is available to download online or can be heard on Amazon Echo (Music Unlimited)
