graceful & charming (sweet forget-me-not) lyrics – great big sea

fancy brings a thought to me of a flower so bright and fair,
grance and beauty, both combine to make that far more rare
like a maiden that i know who shared my happy life,
where we parted, when she whispered, “you’ll forget-me-not”.

she’s graceful and she’s charming like the lillies in the pond
time is flowing swiftly by, of her i am so fond,
the roses and the daisies they bloom around the spot
where we parted, when she whispered, “you’ll forget-me-not”.

we met i really don’t know where, i guess it’s all the same
love grows in a village green as well as in a lane
i gently took her by the hand and a glance at me she shot,
she dropped a flower, i picked it up, it was a sweet forget-me-not.

she’s graceful and she’s charming like the lillies in the pond
time is flowing swiftly by, of her i am so fond,
the roses and the daisies they bloom around the spot
where we parted, when she whispered, “you’ll forget-me-not”.

and then there came a happy time when something that i said
caused her lips to murmur “yes”, shortly we were wed.
now there’s a cottage by a lane and a tiny garden spot
there grows a flower, i know it well, it’s the sweet forget-me-not.

she’s graceful and she’s charming like the lillies in the pond
time is flowing swiftly by, of her i am so fond,
the roses and the daisies they bloom around the spot
where we parted, when she whispered, “you’ll forget-me-not,
you’ll forget me not”.
