Lyrics:
Daisy is darling, Iris is sweet, Lily is lovely, Blossom's a treat
Of all the sweethearts - a guy could meet, well I finally chose an American beauty rose
Camelia's tragic, she can't be mine, Magnolia's magic, it makes Maggie shine
Laurel will hug you, Orchid's divine, still I finally chose an American beauty rose
She's clingier than Ivy, and she's zingier than black-eyed Susan
And springier than Mabel in June
I'm daffy as a daffodil, it's laughable the way I thrill when roses are in bloom.
Pansy is pretty, Willow is tall, Violet's kisses, tulips (two lips) recall
(Violet's kiss is Tulip's recall) How can I choose one, I love 'em all,
Still I finally chose an American beauty rose
