I WORE FLOWERS

I wore flowers in my hair the day you went away
Lovely roses, red as rouge,
Bloomin fresh that day
Someday will you come back to me?
Or have the flowers all died?
Sing a song of sixpence
And a pocket full of rye

I wore a chain of silver the day you went away
Links so fine, as fine as silk
Around my neck that day
Someday will you come back to me?
Or has the silver tarnished turned?
Sing a song of innocence
A child's lesson learned

I wore of gown of satin the day you went away
Its cloth spun soft and shimmering
It clung to me that day
Someday will you come back to me?
Or has the satin worn?
Sing a song of tattered hopes
A love behind left scorned

I wore flowers in my hair the day you went away
Lovely roses, red as rouge,
Bloomin fresh that day
You never did return to me
Now the flowers have all died
I sang a song of sixpense
And all I got from you was lies

I wear no flowers in my hair
'Round my neck no silver chain
I've put away my satin gown
Never to wear it again
You never did come back to me
Although I waited there
I sang your song for far too long
Now I no longer care

Aye,
I sang your song for far too long
Now I no longer care...
