You say my un -cle left a mil -lion,
And half of it be -longs to me?
Let us talk a -bout that lat -er, It's im -por -tant but love's great -er,
Right now I'm bus -y as a bee.
I'm in an aw -ful hur -ry so don't ask me now to stop,
I'm go -ing to place an or -der in a lit -tle flow -er shop:
Give me One Doz -en Ros -es Put my heart in be -side them and
Send them to the one I love.
She'll be Glad to re -ceive them And I know she'll be -lieve them.
That's some -thing we've been talk -ing of.
There may be Or -ange blos -soms lat -er kind of think that there will, 'cause
She's done some -thing to me and my heart won't keep still.
Give me One Doz -en Ros -es put my heart in be -side them and
Send them to the one I love.
