Subject: Lyric Request - Betty Elizabeth Brown

I have just a fragment of lyric, but if anyone can ad any more information to it, I'd be very grateful.

"Listen to me and I'll tell you the story of Betty Elizabeth Brown, Who found beneath a lilac tree a tiny faerie crown And put it on her head and danced a circle thrice And never dreamed she trod on faerie ground...."

TIA

Andy

"This is our sixth reproduction of a shaped children's book, and our fourth illustrated by Margaret Evans Price. Price has certainly proved popular with our customers, and for good reason. Her illustrations are pretty and fanciful. She is especially gifted at depicting children in a stylized yet not cartoonish manner. In The Betty Fairy Book (1915) a little girl ? Betty ? inadvertently angers the fairies by wearing a fairy crown that she finds and dancing ?on fairy ground?. The fairies decide to banish her to a boat, on which Betty bravely faces several hardships. Betty's courage endears her to the fairies, who relent and take Betty to fairyland where she is cared for and given gifts. Betty comes away from her adventure with fairy souvenirs and new friends. This charming tale is richly illustrated and will appeal to both children and sentimental adults."

The book title is The Betty Fairy Book.
