Flowers Are Red   Harry Chapin



Em The little boy went first day of school 
He got some C crayons and started to draw 
He put Em colors all over the paper 
For C colors was what he saw 
And the Am7 teacher said.. What you doin' young man 
D I'm paintin' flowers he said 
 
She said... It's Am7 not the time for art young man 
And D anyway flowers are green and red 
There's a Em time for everything young man 
And a C way it should be done 
You've got to Em show concern for everyone else 
For you're C not the only D one 
 
And she said... 
G Flo D wers are G red young D man 
G Green D leaves are G green  D 
There's G no need to D see flowers G any other C way 
Than they G way they al D ways G have been C seen 
 
But the little boy said... 
There are G so many D colors in the G rain D bow 
G So many D colors in the C morning D sun 
G So many C colors in the G flo C wer 
And G I see D every G one  **riff** 
 
Em Well the teacher said.. You're sassy 
There's C ways that things should be done 
And Em you'll paint flowers the way they are 
So C repeat after D me.. 
 
And she said... 
G Flo D wers are G red young D man 
G Green D leaves are G green  D 
There's G no need to D see flowers G any other C way 
Than they G way they al D ways G have been C seen 
 
But the little boy said... 
There are G so many D colors in the G rain D bow 
G So many D colors in the C morning D sun 
G So many C colors in the G flo C wer 
And G I see D every G one  **riff** 
 
Well the Em teacher put him in a corner 
She said.. C It's for your own good.. 
And you Em won't come out 'til you get it right 
And are C responding like you should 
Well Am7 finally he got lonely 
Frightened D thoughts filled his head 
And he Am7 went up to that teacher 
And D this is what he said.. 
 
and he said... 
G Flo D wers are G red, D 
G Green D leaves are G green D 
There's G no need to D see flowers G any other C way 
Than the G way they D always G have been C seen  **riff** 
 
Em Time went by like it always does 
And they C moved to another town 
And the Em little boy went to another school 
And C this is what he found 
The Am7 teacher there was smilin? 
She said... D Painting should be fun 
And there are Am7 so many colors in a flower 
So D let's use every one 
 
But that Em little boy painted flowers 
In neat C rows of green and red 
And Em when the teacher asked him why 
C This is what he D said... 
 
and he said... 
G Flo D wers are G red, D 
G Green D leaves are G green D 
There's G no need to D see flowers G any other C way 
Than the G way they D always G have been C seen 
 
but there still must be a way to have our children sing... 
There are G so many D colors in the G rain D bow 
G So many D colors in the C morning D sun 
G So many C colors in the G flo C wer 
And G I see D every G one
