When You Wore A Tulip

by Percy Wenrich







When you wore a tulip,
A sweet, yellow tulip,
And I wore a big red rose.
When you caressed me,
It was then Heaven blessed me,
What a blessing no one knows.
>

You made life cheery
When you called me dearie,
'Twas down where the blue grass grows.
Your lips were sweeter than julep,
When you wore a tulip,
And I wore a big red rose.
