I'll never forget when I was singin' in the streets
You laid a sunflower in the case at my feet
You blew a smile and you rolled right away
People cheered on the day that I fell in love
Yeah, I fell in love

My head was heavy and my clothes they were torn
I'd never felt like anyone's princess before
If you knew how much you blew me away
I'd want to go and relive that day
Was the day I fell in love
Yeah, I fell in love

Oh, Sunflower Man, throw me a dollar, reach out your hand
Laid a big sunflower down at my feet
It was a busker's dream the way I fell in love
I fell in love, I fell in love

The day you gave that big sunflower to me
We lay together and we smoked 'til the dawn
We spoke of poetry and we sung some songs 'til the daylight came

I'm not always good at sayin' how I feel
This song to some people, it's not a big deal
But you know who it's from and you know who it's for
I was a poor busker the day I fell in love
Yeah, I fell in love

Close your eyes, lay your head in my lap
You know I really love that
I thank God for the day that I was singin' in the streets
I earned twelve dollars, a sunflower and you for keeps
Yes, I fell in love
I fell in love
I fell in love
