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

Sweet Violets,
Sweeter than the roses.
Covered all over from head to toe,
Covered all over with Sweet Violets.
