YOU'RE JUST A FLOWER FROM AN OLD BOUQUET
(Gwynn & Lucien Denni)
Recorded by: The Andrews Sisters;
Carmen Cavallaro; Josef Locke; Ruby Wright.
I've hunted all over
To find myself a mate.
Each girl seemed such a disappointment
It was just a trick of fate.
I found then a blossom
A girl of long ago.
See if you can guess dear-
This girl that I love so.
You're just a flower from an old bouquet
I've waited patiently for you, each day.
You're just a dream come true, I know, dear
My dream, wonderful dreams of you
I'll build a home-nest full of love for you
Far from the world away.
There in our sweetheart bower
You're just my flower
From an old Bouquet.
I've prayed that my dreams some-
Day would all come true.
And now at last my prayer is answered
For sweetheart, I've found you.
And no other blossom
Will ever share a part
With my flower here
In the garden of my heart.
