DANIEL O'DONNELL lyrics - Sweet Forget Me Not

DANIEL O'DONNELL
"Sweet Forget Me Not"

Fancy brings a thought to me
Of a flower bright and fair
Its grace and beauty both combine
To make the thought more rare
Just like a maiden that I knew
Who shared my happy love
Where we parted and she whispered
You'll forget me not
She's 'fraid with doubt
She's charming like the lily in the pond
Time is passing swiftly by
Afore I am softened
The daisies and primroses
Were blooming 'round the spot
Where we parted when she whispered
You'll forget me not
I admit I really don't know where
But still it's just the same
For love grows in a busy street
As well as in the lane
I gently pressed her tiny hand
One glance at me she shot
She dropped a flower I picked it up
Was a sweet forget me not
She's 'fraid with doubt
She's charming like the lily in the pond
Time is passing swiftly by
Afore I am softened
The daisies and primroses
Were blooming 'round the spot
Where we parted when she whispered
You'll forget me not

[Short instrumental]

At last there came the happy time
When something that I said
It caused her lips to murmur "Yes"
And shortly we were wed
There is a house down in the lane
In a tiny garden spa
There grows a flower I know so well
It's a sweet forget me not
She's 'fraid with doubt
She's charming like the lily in the pond
Time is passing swiftly by
Afore I am softened
The daisies and primroses
Were blooming 'round the spot
Where we parted when she whispered
You'll forget me not
Where we parted when she whispered
You'll for get me not
