"Choosing a Flower"


If among the garden flow'rs
A choice I had to make,
I would look a this,
I would look at that,
But a pansy I would take.

If among the garden flow'rs
A choice I had to make,
I would look a this,
I would look at that,
But a lily I would take.

If among the garden flow'rs
A choice I had to make,
I would look a this,
I would look at that,
But a tulip I would take.
