Sweet As The Flowers In Maytime

 

Sweet as the flowers in Maytime

Sweet as the dew on the rose

I would rather be somebody's darling

As a poor girl who nobody knows

Oh momma scolds me for burning

What else has a poor girl to do

Oh this world would be sad without a lover

And this world would be sad without you

 

Oh I wish I had someone to love me

Someone just to call me their own

Be the rule over somebody's kitchen

Or the queen over somebody's home

 

Oh what is the use of us parting

Where there's a will there's a way

Tomorrow the sun may be shinning

Although it is cloudy today
