Artificial Flowers:Bobby Darin.
#20 in '60.

#1.
D            Bm        F#m         Bm
Alone in the world was poor little Anne,
   G             Em7            A7
As sweet a young child as you'd find.
    D           Bm            F#m7    Bm
Her parents had gone to their final reward,
G       Em7   A7     D    A7
Leavin' their baby behind.

#2.
     D           Bm             F#m7          Bm
This poor little child was only nine years of age,
     G          Em7       A   A7
when mother and dad went away.
      D           Bm            F#m7          Bm
Still bravely she worked at the one thing she knew,
   G    Em7     A7        D
to earn her few pennies a day.

CHORUS:
D7       G   Em7    Gm       D   G      B7
She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers,
G   Em7     A7        D   G      D
Flowers for ladies of fashion to wear.
D7       G   Em7    Gm           Gm7        D   F#m7   B7
She made artificial flowers, you know those artificial flowers,
G     Gm    Em7  A7         D
Fash..ioned from Annie's despair.

#3.
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.
#4.
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.
#5.
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.
