There Once Was a Farmer


There once was a farmer
who took a young miss,
In back of the barn where
he gave her a. .

Lesson 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 as she did,
They could get married
and raise up some. .

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

The Farmer decided to wed anyway, and soon began planning for his wedding... suit, which he purchased for only one buck, but then he discovered he was just short of... money, and so he got left in the lurch, standing and waiting in front of the... end of the story, which just goes to show, all a girl wants from a man is his... sweet violets, etc...

The girl told the farmer that he'd better stop, Or she'd call her father and he'd call a . . . Taxi and he would be there before long, Someone was doing his little girl . . . Right for a change and so that's why he said, "If you marry her, sir, you're better off . . . Single, because it has been my belief That marriage will bring a man nothing but . . . Sweet Violets (etc.)
