Lyrics

Fancy brings a thought to me of flowers rich and rare
Grace and beauty there combine as well as you so fair
Just like a maiden I once loved she was my busy lot
She dropped a flower I picked it up a sweet forget me not.

She as graceful and as charming as the lilies in the pond
Time has flown so swiftly of her I am so fond
Daisies and the roses too that grew around the spot
Where we parted and I whispered do forget me not.

We met I really don't know where but still it's all the same
Love walks in the busy street as well as in the lane
I clasped her tiny hand in mine she glanced at me she shot
And whispered as we parted do forget me not.

At length there came a happy day and something that I said
Made her lips to murmur yes and shortly we were wed
A tiny little cottage there a little garden plot
Where grows a little flower we call the sweet forget me not.

She‘s as graceful and as charming as the lilies in the pond
Time has flown so swiftly of her I am so fond
Daisies and the roses too that grew around the spot
Where we parted and I whispered do forget me not.
