Painting the Roses Red


Lyrics from "Alice in Wonderland"
Music and Lyrics by Sammy Fain and Bob Hilliard


Painting the roses red
We're painting the roses red
We dare not stop or waste a drop
So let the paint be spread

We're painting the roses red
We're painting the roses red

Painting the roses red
And many a tear we shed
[Three:] Because we know
[Two:] They'll cease to grow
[Ace:] In fact, they'll soon be dead
[All:] And yet we go ahead
Painting the roses red

Painting the roses red
We're painting the roses red
[Alice:] Oh, pardon me, but mister three
Why must you paint them red?

[Cards:] The queen, she likes them red
If she saw white instead
She'd raise a fuss, and each of us
Would quickly lose his head
Since this is the thought we dread
We're painting the roses red

[Alice:] Painting the roses red
[All:] We're painting the roses red
[All:] Don't tell the queen what you have seen
Or say that's what we said
But we're painting the roses red

[Alice:] Yes, painting the roses red
[Two:] Not pink
[Three:] Not green
[Alice:] Not aquamarine
[All:] We're painting the roses red
