Verse:
I realized the way your eyes deceived me,
With tender looks that I mistook for love.
So take away the flowers that you gave me,
And send the kind that you remind me of.

Chorus:
Paper Roses, Paper Roses:
Oh how real those roses seem to be.
But they're only imitation,
Like your imitation love for me.
(repeat verse and chorus)
 
Ending:
Like your imitation love for me.
