American Beauty Rose Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Daisy is darling, Iris is sweet
Lily is lovely, Blossom's a treat
Of all the sweethearts a guy could meet
Well, I finally chose an American beauty, Rose

Camellia's tragic, she can't be mine
Magnolia's magic, it makes Maggie shine
Laurel will hug you, Orchid's divine
Still I finally chose an American beauty Rose

She's clingier than Ivy and she's zingier than black eyed Susan
And springier than Mabel in June
I'm daffy as a Daffodil, it's laughable the way I thrill
When roses are in bloom

Pansy is pretty, Willow is tall
Violet's kisses, Tulips recall
How can I choose one, I love 'em all
Still I finally chose an American beauty Rose

Pansy is pretty, Willow is tall
Violet's kisses, Tulips recall
How can I choose one, I love 'em all
Still I finally chose an American beauty Rose
