VP_001351 Verse 1Springtime gave a flower garden ball Ev'ry flower answered to the call Roses dressed in robes of sparkling dew They were there to gladly welcome you Daisies in their gowns of snowy white Bunny hugged with Poppies left and right Pink Carnations lightly tripped around; Over Clover Blossoms on the ground. Chorus 1Violets were swaying in the breeze To the music of the Bumble Bees Roses doing turkeytrots With the sweet Forget-Me-Nots, Humming birds hummed Haunting melodies The Tulip and the stately Golden Rod Saw Morning Glories peeping o'er the wall The Tiger Lilies in disguise They fluttered 'round with Butterflies, While dancing at the Flower Garden Ball. Verse 2Daffodils were gliding here and there Bluebells sweetly ringing in the air Hyacinths were dancing with delight Lilacs kissed the Ivy Vines goodnight Pansies in their little floral beds They woke up and shook their drowsy heads Twostepped till the leaves began to fall; That broke up the Flower Garden Ball.
