11I sow'd the seeds of love, I sowed the seeds of love,
22And I sow'd them in the spring; And I sowed them in the spring:
33I gather'd them up in the morning so soon, I gathered them up in the morning so soon
44When small birds sweetly sing. While the small birds so sweetly sing.

66My garden was planted well My garden was planted well
77With flowers ev'ry where, With flowers everywhere.
88But I had not the liberty to choose But I had not the liberty to choose for myself
99The flow'r that I lov'd so dear. Of the flowers that I love so dear.

1111The gard'ner standing by, The gardener was standing by,
1212I asked him to choose for me; And I asked him to choose for me.
1313He chose the Violet, the Lily, the Pink, He chose for me the violet, the lily and the pink,
1414But these I refused all three. But those I refused - all three.

1616The Violet I did not like In June there's a red rosebud,
1717Because it fades so soon; And that is the flower for me.
1818The Lily and Pink I did over think I often times have plucked that red rosebud
1919And vow'd I would wait till June. Till I gained the willow tree.

21In June is a red, red Rose;
22And that is the flow'r for me;
23I'll pluck it and think that no Lily nor Pink
24Can match with the bud on that tree.
