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 --

Sweet violets... (the chorus)
