Artificial Flowers (假花) - Bobby Darin

Alone in the world was poor little Anne

 

As sweet a young child as you'd find

 

Her parents had gone to their final reward

 

Leavin' their baby behind

 

Did ya hear this poor little child

 

Was only nine years of age

 

When mother and dad went away

 

Still she bravely worked

 

At the one thing she knew

 

To earn her few pennies a day

 

She made artificial flowers

 

Artificial flowers

 

Flowers for ladies of fashion to wear

She made artificial flowers

 

You know those artificial flowers

 

Fashioned from Annie's despair

 

With paper and shears

With some wire and wax

 

She made up each tulip and mum

 

As snowflakes drifted

Into her tenement room

 

Her baby little fingers grew numb

From makin' artificial flowers

 

Those artificial flowers

 

Flowers for ladies of high fashion to wear

She made artificial flowers

 

Artificial flowers

 

Made from Annie's despair

 

They found little Annie

All covered with ice

 

Still clutchin' her poor frozen shears

 

Amidst all the blossoms

She had fashioned by hand

 

And watered with all her young tears

 

There must be a Heaven

Where little Annie can play

 

In Heavenly gardens and bowers

And instead of a halo

 

She'll wear 'round her head

 

A garland of genuine flowers

 

No more artificial flowers

Throw away those artificial flowers

 

Flowers for ladies of society to wear

Throw away those artificial flowers

 

Those dumb-dumb flowers

Fashioned from Annie's

 

Fashioned from Annie's despair
