  • Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight
    I'm gonna open up your gate
    And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
    And how she gave me life
    And how she made it end
    Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight


    Flowers growing on a hill, dragonflies and daffodils
    Learn from us very much, look at us but do not touch
    Phaedra is my name


    Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight
    I'm gonna open up your gate
    And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
    And how she gave me life
    And how she made it end
    Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight


    Flowers are the things we know, secrets are the things we grow
    Learn from us very much, look at us but do not touch
    Phaedra is my name

    Some velvet mornin' when I'm straight
    Flowers growing on a hill
    I'm gonna open up your gate
    dragonflies and daffodils
    And maybe tell you 'bout Phaedra
    Learn from us very much
    And how she gave me life
    look at us but do not touch
    FADE
    And how she made it end Writer/s: LEE HAZLEWOOD
