lyrics

Sweet Forget Me Not

Words and Music - Bobby Newcomb
As Performed by Allison Crowe

Fancy brings a thought to me of a flower bright and fair.
Its grace and beauty both combine more brighter to more fair.
Just like a maiden that I know once shared my happy lot,
where we parted, when she whispered, "You'll forget me not."

We met I really don't know where, but still it's just the same,
for love grows in the city streets as well as in the lane.
I gently pressed her tiny hand - one glance at me she shot.
She dropped her flower, I picked it up - 't’was a sweet forget-me-not.

She's graceful and she's charming like the lilies in the pond.
Time is sliding swiftly by - of her I am so fond.
The roses and the daisies were blooming 'round the spot,
where we parted, when she whispered, "You'll forget me not."

At last there came a happy time when something that I said
it caused her lips to mouth her "Yes" - and shortly we were wed.
There is a house down in the lane in a tiny garden spot.
There grows a flower, I know it well - it's a sweet forget-me-not.

She's graceful and she's charming like the lilies in the pond.
Time is flying swiftly by - of her I am so fond.
The roses and the daisies were blooming around the spot,
where we parted when she whispered, "You'll forget me not."

When we parted, when she whispered, "You'll forget me not."
