    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 has such beautiful
    Manners that suited a girl of her charms,
    A girl that he'd like for 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.

    The girl told the farmer that he'd better stop,
    And she told her father and called a

    For someone was doing his little girl
    Right for a change, and so here's what he said:
    "If you marry her, son, you're better off
    Single 'cause it's always been my belief,
    Marriage can bring a man nothing but

    And started in planning for his wedding
    Suit which he'd purchased for only one buck,
    But then he found out he was just out of

    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
