Bobby Darin – Artificial Flowers tab
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.
