The Delanies – This Boy Will Be The Death Of Me lyrics

Lady of the flowers in my garden
Will you lend me an ear?
Tonight, I’m wrong
I thought I heard your voice on the radio

Gaily on the streets I ran
I heard you cry
This boy was waiting down the road
I thought I saw your face on the television show

The flowers in my garden
They just never tends to grow
Modern life was always quite a mystery to me

Lily of the valley knows
She comes and goes
As I was standing down the road
I heard her singing voice at the Grand Ole Opry Show

Plain to see
This boy will be the death of me
Well truthfully, he never really turned me on
Death shall part us now as the sun goes down
