When Daisies Pied And Violets Blue

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

This is a little bit longer than the song upstairs

When daises pied
When daisies pied, and violets blue,
And lady-smocks all silver white. And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue:
Do paint the meadow with delight.
The cuckoo then on every tree,
Mocks married men, Mocks married men for thus sings he,
Cuckoo; cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoocuckoo: o word of fear o word of fear
Appeasing to a married ear. Appeasing to a married ear.

When shepards pipe on oaten straw and marry larks are plough mens clocks
and turtles tread rooks and draws and maidens bleach there summer smocks.

It's 'unpleasing' to a married ear, because of cuckold.
