Wanda Jackson — Violet And A Rose lyrics

(Send me some violets I'm blue as can be)
A violet fell in love with a rose and started it flashing from it's head to it's toe
Then one day the rose was kissed by the dew
A new love was born and the violet turned blue
Roses are red violets are blue I'm sending red red roses to you
If you care to send some flowers to me then send me some violets I'm blue as can be
[ choir ]
I wanted my love to bouquet with you but just like the rose you've proven untrue
A flower that's wild they say has no home and just like the violet I'm left all alone
Roses are red...
