Easter Parade

In your Easter Bonnet
With all the frills upon it,
You’ll be the grandest lady
In the easter parade.
I’ll be all in clover
And when they look you over,
I’ll be the proudest fellow
In the easter parade.

On the avenue, Fifth Avenue,
 the photographers will snap us,
And you’ll find that you’re in the rotogravure.
Oh, I could write a sonnet
about your Easter bonnet,
And of the girl
I’m taking to the Easter Parade.

Early One Morning

Early one morning,
Just as the sun was rising,
I heard a maiden sing
In the valley below.

“O, don’t deceive me,
O, never leave me,
How could you use
A poor maiden so?”

Gay is the garland,
And fresh are the roses,
I’ve culled from the garden,
To place upon thy brow.

“O, don’t deceive me,
O, never leave me,
How could you use
A poor maiden so?”

Remember the vows,
That you made to your Mary,
Remember the bower
Where you vowed to be true.

“O, don’t deceive me,
O, never leave me,
How could you use
A poor maiden so?”

Thus sang the poor maiden,
Her sorrows bewailing,
Thus sang the poor maid
In the valley below.

English Country Garden

How many kinds of sweet flowers grow
In an English country garden?
We’ll tell you now of some that we know,
Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.
Daffodils, Heart’s Ease and Flox,
Meadowsweet and Lady Smocks,
Gentain, Lupine and tall Hollihocks.
Roses, Foxgloves,Snowdrops, blue forget-me-nots,
In an English country garden.

How many insects come here and go
In an English country garden?
We’ll tell you now of some that we know,
Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.
Fireflies, Moths, Gnats and Bees,
Spiders climbing in the trees,
Butterflies drift in the gentle breeze,
There are snakes, Ants that sting
And other creepy things,
In an English country garden.

How many songbirds fly to and fro
In an English country garden?
We’ll tell you now of some that we know,
Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.
Bobolink, Cuckoo and Quail,
Tanager and Cardinal,
Bluebird, Lark, Thrush and Nightingale,
There is joy in the spring
When the birds begin to sing,
In an English country garden.

How many kinds of sweet flowers grow
In an English country garden?
We’ll tell you now of some that we know,
Those we miss you’ll surely pardon.
Daffodils, Heart’s Ease and Flox,

Gentain, Lupine and tall Hollihocks.
Roses, Foxgloves,Snowdrops, blue forget-me-nots,
