  • It's a beautiful day, she's been crying all night
    Oh, there's tears in her blues and bloodshot in mine
    This bender's been bendin', it's hellbound to break
    My baby's had all she can take

    So, mister, I'll take your roses
    If you cut off the thorns, she can't take no more
    I'll buy violets and daisies to hide all the crazy
    It's gonna take all you've got
    Oh, it's a bad day for love but a good day for flower shops

    Well, I took some pills and she took the dogs
    Oh, it's all gone to hell, she's gone to her mom's
    And I took up drinkin' since she took the time
    To tell me I took the best years of her life

    So, buddy, I'll take your roses
    If you cut off the thorns, she can't take no more
    I'll buy violets and daisies to hide all the crazy
    It's gonna take all you've got
    It's a tough day for love but a good day for flower shops

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I don't need one, I need one million to
    To get you

    So, mister, I'll take your roses
    If you cut off the thorns, she can't take no more
    I'll buy violets and daisies to get back my baby
    It's gonna take all you've got
    Oh, it's a bad day for love but a good day for flower shops Writer/s: Benjamin David Burgess, Ernest Keith Smith, Mark L. Holman
