Eighteen yellow roses came today
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet
When the boy came to the door, I didn't know what to say
But eighteen yellow roses came today

I opened up the card to see what it said
I couldn't believe my eyes when I had read
Though you belong to another, I love you anyway
Yes, eighteen yellow roses came today

I never doubted your love for a minute
I always thought that you would be true
But now this box and the flowers in it
I guess, there's nothing left for me to do

But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing
And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring
'Cause eighteen yellow roses will wilt and die one day
But a father's love will never fade away, will never fade away
