VP_010246 Verse 1Down any street, or in an old market square, One day you'll meet a sweet lady there, Wrinkled old face, but with the kindliest smile, She'll bring you happiness once in a while. Chorus 1Just a Flower Seller 'neath an old umbrella shady Crying "Won't you buy some pretty flowers for your lady" In the showers or the sunny hours you will find her Selling flowers to the busy people passing by She'll pick a rose, carnations gay, Or maybe sweet violets to help you say, With a bouquet, a word of love or regrets. Just a Flower Seller 'neath an old umbrella shady Handing you a bunch of loveliness as if to say, "Take care of ev'ry bloom, you'll love their sweet perfume" Just a Flower Seller spreading joy all day.
