Well, when you’re sitting there In your silk upholstered chair Talkin’ to some rich folk that you know Well I hope you won’t see me And my ragged company Well, 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 U.S. Mail Say it with dead flowers in my wedding And I won’t forget to put roses on your grave No, I won’t forget to put roses on your grave

One thought on “Rolling Stones, “Dead Flowers””

  1. Pink Floyd? ” So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking, racing around, to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older, shorter of breath, and one day closer to death.” You can’t catch time (the sun), but time (the sun) will catch you.*

    *Time (Dark Side of the Moon, 1973).
