She says "When violets bloom on the window-pane
And roses grow on the kitchen floor,
It's then that I'll return again
And be your bride forevermore".

hi tiny

it's a folk song and i'm afraid it's not a pretty tale all in all.

My! what a tale. It is not what i thought it would be like at all. Thank you for the links. I am still trying to look for the version you suggested. I like how folk music sounds.
Also i hope you do not mind me following your blog. It just seems so interesting.
