Ain't no flower been so sweet
Then one your hand could never meet
It's a wise man that left well alone
Them ribbon skies and springtime dews
They're gonna cast their spell on you
Man don't you take your lady friend for granted

And honey never is so brown
Until you see it in some other town
It's a fool bear paw stuck in a jar
Them pretty gals and their features too
Are gonna put the monkey suit on you
No don't you take your lady friend for granted

Well more than a look and clouds rush in
More than a hug and you're standing in
That lonesome rain you wrought yourself
And now when you're there all sad and soaked
Remember that sweetheart you broke
When you took your lady friend for granted
