The yellow daisy
What's his heart Sweetheart, Sweetheart!
What's his heart?
Very often I've been told
Of his yellow shining gold
But the gold's the smallest part
Of love, Sweetheart, Sweetheart!
Of a happy love, Sweetheart!
Is it true, my dear, is it true
That his heart's a rusty brown?
Nay my sweetheart do not frown,
Better know it's brown and sere,
Now than when too late, My dear, my dear
When too late, My dear!
