I’m so sorry honey
You know I didn’t mean
I know that’s what it looked like
But it’s not what it seems
You know I love you baby
I won’t do you no wrong
Here’s a box of roses
I’ll be home before long

Red, red, roses!
I bought them for you.

She stands behind her man
Obedient and broke
Ignores his prolonged stares
All his flirtatious jokes
The way he looks at them
She very seldom sees
But keeps her place behind him
Fulfills his every need
You know I love you baby
I won’t do you no wrong
Here’s a box of roses
I’ll be home before long

Red, red, roses!
I bought them for you.

Not even a message
A text or call to say
He was never coming
For their important date
Two days later
Another lame excuse
But she took it
Just to keep him
Though his heart was somewhere else

Red, red, roses!
I bought them for you!
