LYRIC

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

cuz eighteen yellow roses
will wilt and die one day
but a fathers love, will never fade away
will never fade away
