Dead Flowers
Well, when you're sitting there 
In your silk upholstered chair 
Talking to some rich folks that you know 
Well I hope you won't see me 
In my ragged company 
You know I could never be alone 

Take me down little Susie, take me down 
I know you think you're the Queen of the Underground 
And you can send me dead flowers every morning 
Send me dead flowers by the mail 
Send me dead flowers to my wedding 
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave 

Well, when you're sitting back 
In your rose pink Cadillac 
Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day 
I'll be in my basement room 
With a needle and a spoon 
And another girl to take my pain away 

Take me down little Susie, take me down 
I know you think you're the Queen of the Underground 
And you can send me dead flowers every morning 
Send me dead flowers by the mail 
Send me dead flowers to my wedding 
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave 

Take me down little Susie, take me down 
I know you think you're the Queen of the Underground 
And you can send me dead flowers every morning 
Send me dead flowers by the US mail 
Say it with dead flowers at my wedding 
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave 
No I won't forget to put roses on your grave--
