Sweet As The Flowers In Maytime

   Sweet as the flowers in May time
   Sweet as the dew on the rose
   I would rather be somebody’s darling
   As a poor girl who nobody knows

Oh momma scolds me for burning
What else has a poor girl to do
Oh this world would be sad without a lover
And this world would be sad without you

Oh I wish I had someone to love me
Someone just to call me their own
Be the rule over somebody’s kitchen
Or the queen over somebody’s home

Oh what is the use of us parting
Where there’s a will there’s a way
Tomorrow the sun may be shinning
Although it is cloudy today
