Ten days too late you show up
With a sheepish grin and a bouquet in your hand
You make mistakes by the dozen
Don't think you can make it up the same way again


Flowers after the fact
Ain't gonna get me back
You gotta do something sooner and better than that
When you bring me red roses
There's an ulterior motive
Don't give me flowers after the fact

No part of your heart's ever in it
You're just trying to get your foot back in the door
I might feel like you meant it
If those long stems had come in the name of love before

(Repeat Chorus)

When you bring me red roses
There's an ulterior motive
Don't need no flowers after the fact
Now don't give me flowers after the fact
