Verse:
It hap - pened in a flow - er shop just the oth - er day,
When I went to or - der a bou -quet.
I walked up to the flo - rist but be - fore I could be - gin,
A man rushed in and then I heard him say:
 
Chorus:
I want some Red Ros - es For A Blue La - dy,
Mis - ter Flo - rist take my or - der please,
We had a sil - ly quar - rel the oth - er day,
Hope these pret - ty flow - ers chase the blues a - way.
Wrap up some Red Ros - es For A Blue La - dy,
Send them to the sweet - est gal in town,
And if they do the trick, I'll hur - ry back to pick,
Your best white or - chid for her wed - ding gown.
