Lyrics SEND ME NO ROSES,
PLEASE,
NO MORE ROSES
YOUR ROSES
CAN'T HOLD ME,
WHAT I NEED MOST
IS YOU.

verse 1:
WITHOUT FAIL EV'RYDAY
SINCE YOU WENT AWAY
THE DOORBELL RINGS,
YOU'RE SENDING ROSES
AGAIN.
IN MY ROOM
OLD PETALS FALL
BUT, DARLING,
THAT'S NOT ALL
I READ YOUR CARD,
THEN TEARS
BEGIN TO FALL.

Chorus:
SEND ME NO ROSES,
PLEASE,
NO MORE ROSES
ROSES ARE RED,
I KNOW,
BUT THROUGH MY TEARS
THEY LOOK BLUE.
SEND ME NO ROSES,
PLEASE,
NO MORE ROSES
YOUR ROSES
CAN'T HOLD ME,
WHAT I NEED MOST
IS YOU.

verse 2:
I BELIEVE
WHAT THEY SAY,
THAT TRUE LOVE
WILL MAKE A WAY,
ALTHOUGH AT TIMES
IT GOES FROM RIGHT
TO WRONG.
IF SOMEDAY
YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND,
MY DARLING,
YOU WILL FIND
THAT ROSES DIE
BUT MY LOVE
FOR YOU LIVES ON.

Chorus:
SEND ME NO ROSES,
PLEASE,
NO MORE ROSES
ROSES ARE RED,
I KNOW,
BUT THROUGH MY TEARS
THEY LOOK BLUE.
SEND ME NO ROSES,
PLEASE,
NO MORE ROSES
YOUR ROSES
CAN'T HOLD ME,
WHAT I NEED MOST
IS YOU.

verse 3:
THOUGH THE LOVE
WE ONCE KNEW
STILL LIVES
INSIDE OF YOU,
THE ONE
WHO HOLDS YOU NOW
WON'T SET YOU FREE.
TO SEE ME,
YOU DON'T DARE,
BUT ROSES SAY
YOU CARE.
TELL HER GOODBYE
THEN PLEASE RETURN
TO ME.

Chorus:
SEND ME NO ROSES,
PLEASE,
NO MORE ROSES
ROSES ARE RED,
I KNOW,
BUT THROUGH MY TEARS
THEY LOOK BLUE.
SEND ME NO ROSES,
PLEASE,
NO MORE ROSES
YOUR ROSES
CAN'T HOLD ME,
WHAT I NEED MOST
IS YOU.
