Sweet Violets Sweeter than the roses Covered all over from head to toe Covered all over with sweet violets There once was a farmer who took a young miss In back of the barn where he gave her a..

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 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 doin' his little girl.. Right for a change and so that's why he said If you marry her son, you're better off..
