?. Drop me a flower [sung text checked 1 time]

Vine, vine and eglantine,
Clasp her window, trail and twine!
Rose, rose and clematis,
Trail and twine and clasp and kiss,
Kiss, - kiss; and make her a bower
All of flowers.
And drop me a flower.

Vine, vine and eglantine,
Cannot a flower, - a flower be mine?
Rose, rose and clematis,
Drop me a flower, a flower to kiss,
Kiss, - kiss - and out of her bower
All of flowers, - a flower, - a flower
Drop, - a flower.
