VERSE 01: When I wander in my garden,/Each little flow’r I see;/Sunshine makes them, ev’ry one, shine,/All nod their heads at me;/There are pansies and pinks,/There’s a daisy that winks/At a violet under the wall;/Each is fair in a way,/You can choose which you may,/But for me there’s a Queen of them all!
CHORUS: I’m so tired of violets,/Take them all away,/Lillies are frail/And a trifle pale,/While the tulip’s much too gay./Just one blossom I adore,/Fairest flow’r that grows,/If my heart you would win,/And you want to begin,/Bring me a rose!
VERSE 02: I’ve seen ev’ry baby blossom,/Tuck’d in its nice warm bed,/Glowing, ev’ry colour showing,/Purple and green and red,/There are dahlias and stocks,/There are tall hollyhocks,/There’s a peony blushing and fair,/All are charming I know,/But wherever I go,/There is one that’s beyond all compare!
