Painting the Roses Red



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


Doodle dee do dee do dee do
Bum bum bum bum

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?

[Three:] Well, the fact is, miss
We planted the white roses by mistake
And...

[All:] 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 (spoken):] Oh, dear, then let me help you

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
