You asked me if I had to pick
What would my favorite flower be
And as for my response
I thought about it very carefully

I ain't one for "two-lips",
I already have those,
And I'd want a silver wedding band,
So baby, not "marrygolds",

I don't need a buttercup
To know that I have luck, I have you,
And I'm hydrated and healthy
So forget the "IV"

Black-Eyed Susans remind me of a bully I once knew,
And while we're on the subject let's cross off pansies too.

So yeah roses really are red,
And violets are so very blue,
But you can forget about the bouquet,
Because no matter what day, it's true
I'll always pick you.

You'd make me think we're a was,
If you got "begone-ias",
And I've got a loud mouth but not a green thumb,
So I hate keeping "mum".

I don't mind "lie-lacs",
But I'd rather stay honest,
Jasmine's nice but I prefer Pocahontas.

You say forget me not- you know I won't ever,
And we can save "or kid" as a future endeavor,
And while we're on the subject of family trees,
Let's add to the list "baby's breath" and "poppies".

And I don't like words that I can't spell,
So that means rhododendrons are incontrovertibly out as well.

So yeah roses really are red,
And violets are so very blue,
But you can forget about the bouquet,
Because no matter what day, it's true
I'll always pick you.

I'm not a fan of sweetpea or brussel sprout,
"car"nations are "auto"matically out.
I like the hill not so much the valley, so lets just add lily to the tally,
And "Queene Anne can keep her Lace" it was "for Sythia" anyways.

I got two sisters not "tuberose" from my paps,
And Edelweiss was taken by the Von Trapps,
The bird of paradise can stay in his tree and take the snapdragon with it
Cuz they ain't for me,
The guy who named sunflowers had his physics askew,
Because we'd all explode if the sun ever grew.
(It makes me nervous)

But sure roses really are red,
And violets are so very blue,
But you can forget about the bouquet,
Because no matter what day, it's true
I'll always pick you.
