  • The chorus is from the song "Sweet Violets" by Joseph Emmet, from his 1882 play Fritz Among the Gypsies. (I B Emerson)
  • Song Lyrics:
    (Chorus) 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
    Lecture on horses and chickens and eggs,
    And told her that she had such beautiful
    Manners that suited a girl of her charms,
    A girl that he wanted to take in his
    Washing and ironing and then, if she did,
    They could get married and raise lots of
    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 doing his little girl
    Right for a change and so that's why he said,
    "If you marry her, son, you're better off
    Single 'cause it's always been my belief,
    Marriage will bring a man nothing but
    The farmer decided he'd wed anyway,
    And started in planning for his wedding
    Suit, which he purchased for only one buck,
    But then he found out he was just out of
    Money and so he got left in the lurch,
    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
    (I B Emerson)
