Artificial Flowers

Bobby Darin

 DBmF#mBm
 Alone in the world was poor little Anne,
 GEm7A7
As sweet a young child as you'd find.
 DBmF#m7Bm
Her parents had gone to their final reward,
 GEm7A7DA7
 Leavin' their baby behind. 

 DBmF#m7Bm
This poor little child was only nine years of age,
 GEm7AA7
when mother and dad went away. 
 DBmF#m7Bm
Still bravely she worked at the one thing she knew,
 GEm7A7D
to earn her few pennies a day.

CHORUS:
 D7GEm7GmDGB7
 She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers,
 GEm7A7DGD
 Flowers for ladies of fashion to wear.
 D7GEm7GmGm7DF#m7B7
 She made artificial flowers, you know those artificial flowers,
 GGmEm7A7D
 Fash..ioned 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.
CHORUS:
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 in 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.
CHORUS:
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.

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
