“Sweet Violets” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music for the song “Sweet Violets” was written and composed by J. K. Emmet and published by John Church and Co. of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1882. The cover totes this music as the “only correct and authorized edition.” The song “Sweet Violets” came from Emmet’s play, “Fritz among the Gypsies,” and was a humorous, “censored rhyme” song where the last word of a couplet that could be inferred to be crude because of the rhyming scheme, was left off and the next couplet sung.
