Sweet Violets 2

Sweet Violets 2

 There once was a farmer who took a young miss
 In back of the barn where he gave her a -
 Lecture on horses and chickens and eggs
 And told her that she had such beautiful -
 Manners that suited a girl of her charms,
 A girl that he wanted to take in his -
 Washing and ironing and then if she did
 They could get married and raise lots of --

CHO:  Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses
      Covered all over from head to toe
      Covered all over with seet violets.

 The girl told the farmer that he'd better stop
 And she called her father and he called a -
 Taxi and got there before very long
 'Cause someone was doing his little girl -
 Right for a change and so that's why he said
 If you marry her, son, you're better off -
 Single 'cause its always been my belief
 Marriage will bring a man nothing but--

 Sweet violets ...

 The farmer decided he'd wed anyway
 And started in planning for his wedding -
 Suit which he purchased for only one buck
 But then he found out he was just out of -
 Money and so he got left in a lurch
 Standing and waiting in front of the -
 End of this story which just goes to show
 All a girl wants from a man is his --

 Sweet Violets ...
