Flowers Are Red (花是红色的) (Edited Version) - Harry Chapin

Written by:Harry Chapin

 

The little boy went first day of school

He got some crayons

And he started to draw

 

He put colors all over the paper

 

For colors was what he saw

 

And the teacher said

What you doing young man

 

I'm painting flowers he said

 

She said

It's not the time

For art young man

And anyway flowers are green and red

There's a time

For everything young man

And a way it should be done

 

You've got to show concern

For everyone else

For you're not the only one

And she said

Flowers are red young man

And green leaves are green

 

There's no need to see

Flowers any other way

Than they way they always

Have been seen

But the little boy said

 

There are so many colors

In the rainbow

So many colors in the morning sun

So many colors in the flower

And I see every one

 

Well the teacher said

You're sassy

There's ways that things should be

 

And you'll paint flowers

The way they are

So repeat after me

And she said

Flowers are red young man

And green leaves are green

 

There's no need to see flowers

Any other way

Than they way they always

Have been seen

But the little boy said

 

There are so many colors

In the rainbow

 

So many colors in the morning sun

So many colors in the flower

And I see every one

 

The teacher put him in a corner

 

She said it's for your own good

 

And you won't come out

Till you get it right

And are responding like you should

 

Well finally he got lonely

 

Frightened thoughts filled his head

 

And he went up to the teacher

And this is what he said

 

And he said

 

Flowers are red

 

And green leaves are green

 

There's no need to see flowers

Any other way

Than the way they always

Have been seen

 

Time went by like it always does

And they moved to another town

 

And the little boy went to

Another school

 

And this is what he found

 

The teacher there was smiling

 

She said

Painting should be fun

 

And there are so many colors

In a flower

 

So let's use every one

 

But that little boy painted flowers

In neat rows of green and red

 

And when the teacher asked him why

This is what he said

 

And he said

 

Flowers are red

 

And green leaves are green

 

There's no need to see flowers

Any other way

Than the way they always

Have been seen
