14 November Lyrics: Sweet Violets

There was a young farmer who lived on rock
He liked to count sheep while he diddled his...
Marbles and toys as in days of old yore
And for a companion he had a young...
Maiden whose passion was playing with dolls
She told him she wanted to nuzzle his...

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets

The farmer was pleas-ed with all of his luck
She told him she'd show him a new way to...
Bring up the children and teach them to knit
While the boys in the barnyard were shoveling...
Hay from the stables and filling the rick
He told her he'd let her grab hold of his...
Long middle finger that had a slight rash
To sooth it he jammed into right into her...

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets


The farmer then left her and went off to hunt
He said, "While I'm gone, take good care of your..."
Little pet rabbits which plays in the grass
For when I get home, I will grab me some..."

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets


The maiden was shocked at his strength and his force
She could tell that he was hung like a...
Hammock which sailors do sleep in a lot
He said, "From now on I will call you my...
Twinkle-toed lassie." She said, "My name's Mulva.
Now do you have ointment for my raging..."

Sweet violets, sweeter than the roses,
Covered all over from head to toe,
With sweet violets

The O'Danny Girls, Now Listen to the O'Danny Girls
(bawdy Renaissance period music)
