Sweet violets Lyrics by Roy Clark 



Sweet violets by Roy Clark


All year long I waited for the chance
To ask if she'd go with me to the dance
She said what kind of flowers will I get
And all I could afford to buy were sweet violets.

Sweeter than all the roses
Covered all over with teardrops
She laughed at my sweet violets.
That night another stole my love away
He promised long stemmed roses everyday
She broke my heart and still I can't forget
The time she laughed and left me with my sweet violets.

Her tear stained letter came to me today
Now someone buys her orchids everyday
She has the world at her command and yet
She wants the boy who offered love and sweet violets.

Sweeter than all the roses
Covered all over with teardrops
She cries for my sweet violets...
