I'm sending you a big bouquet of roses
One for every time you broke my heart
And as the door of love between us closes
Tears will fall like petals when we part

I begged you to be different, but you'll always be untrue
I'm tired of forgivin', now there's nothin' left to do

So I'm sending you a big bouquet of roses
One for every time you broke my heart

I know that I should hate you after all you've put me through
But how can I be bitter when I'm still in love with you?

So I'm sending you a big bouquet of roses
One for every time you broke my heart

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: Another contributor says "Additional lyrics to 'Bouquet Of Roses' -
As per Readers Digest 'Treasury Of Best Loved Songs':

[2nd time through starts:]
'You made our lover's lane a road of sorrow
Till at last we had to say goodbye
You're leaving me to face each new tomorrow
With a broken heart you taught to cry'


These are included herewith for informational purposese only since Eddy Arnold didn't
sing them on the particular recording I listened to.
