James Cleveland – Give Me My Flowers Lyrics

GIVE ME MY FLOWERS

WHILE I YET LIVE

SO THAT I, I, I CAN SEE THE BEAUTY

THAT THEY BRING

FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES

MAY GIVE ME FLOWERS

WHEN I’M SICK…

OR ON MY SICK BED

BUT I’D RATHER HAVE

JUST ONE TULIP RIGHT NOW

THAN A TRUCK LOAD OF ROSES

WHEN I’M DEAD

SPEAK KIND WORDS TO ME

WHILE I CAN HEAR THEM

SO THAT I, I, I CAN HEAR THE BEAUTY

THAT THEY BRING
