Sinead O'Connor – Sweet Violets lyrics

[performed sometimes live at concerts]

There once was a farmer who took a young miss
To the side of his barn where he gave her a lecture
On horses and chickens and eggs
And told her that she had such beautiful manners
That suited the girl of his charms
A girl that he wanted to take him his washing and ironing
And if she did they would be married
And have...

... Sweet violets
Sweeter than the roses
Covered all over from head to toe
Sweet violets

That’s where my name’s strong
Mary say, i’ve got to go
He don’t mind that dead wall that appeared
Next to rude and lied and he knew anyway
So goodnight and thank you very much
