Violets, roses and daffodils
Just take a bunch
For your window sill
Buy you some flowers
And watch the world change
Flowers make your heart free
They'll bring you back love
Wait and see

Chorus

Won't somebody buy
Won't somebody buy
Won't somebody take a flower
There are only half a crown

I've walked these streets
All of my years
I know their laughter
I know their tears
I hold their joys
And shared all their fears
I walk these streets
Through the hours
Asking the world
To buy my flowers

I had a love
Long long ago
He needed me
And I loved him so
He marched away
To die by the gun
I lay a rose as I pass
Where he lies cold
Under the sun

Violets, roses, and daffodils
Just take a bunch for the window sill
Buy you some flowers
And watch the world change
Flowers make the worls free
They'll bring back love
Wait and see

Won't somebode buy
Won't somebody buy
