Tulips and Heather
 
A spray of tulips and heather,
tied up together
I sent my love today
A spray of tulips and heather,
asking her whether
Love's dream had gone astray!
 
For there's a meaning to all the flowers
They tell a story that never lies!
This purple heather, means lonely hours
And tulips weep for a love that dies!
 
And so I pray when they reach you,
if they can teach you
All that is in my heart
My spray of tulips and heather,
bring us together
Never again to part!
 
( For there's a meaning )
My tulips and heather! 
( To all the flowers )
Are tied up together!
( They tell a story . . . )
They tell you a tale . . .
that never lies!
( This purple heather . . . )
This beautiful heather . . . 
( Means lonely hours . . . )
Means lonely forever . . .
( And tulips weep for . . . )
These tulips convey a love that dies!
 
And so I pray when they reach you,
if they can teach you
All that is in my heart
My spray of tulips and heather,
brings us together
Never again to part . . .
 
Darling! Never again to part . . .
