the violet and the rose
lyrics

A violet fell in love with a rose and started it flashing from its head to its toe

Then one day the rose was kissed by the dew

A new love was born and the violet turned blue

Roses are red violets are blue I'm sending red red roses to you

If you care to send some flowers to me then send me some violets I'm blue as can be

I wanted my love to bouquet with you and just like the rose you've proven untrue

A flower that's wild they say has no home and just like the violet I'm left all alone

Roses are red...
