Perry Como - "Tulips And Heather" lyrics

A spray of tulips and heather, tied up together
I sent my love today
A spray of tulips and heather, asking her whether
Love's dream had gone astray!

For there's a meaning to all the flowers
They tell a story that never lies!
This purple heather, means lonely hours
And tulips weep for a love that dies!

And so I pray when they reach you, if they can teach you
All that is in my heart
My spray of tulips and heather, bring us together
Never again to part!

( For there's a meaning ) My tulips and heather!
( To all the flowers ) Are tied up together!
( They tell a story . . . ) They tell you a tale . . . that never lies!
( This purple heather . . . ) This beautiful heather . . .
( Means lonely hours . . . ) Means lonely forever . . .
( And tulips weep for . . . ) These tulips convey a love that dies!

And so I pray when they reach you, if they can teach you
All that is in my heart
My spray of tulips and heather, brings us together
Never again to part . . .

Darling! Never again to part . . .
