Stop And Smell The Roses
Mac Davis Lyrics


Hey Mister
Where you going in such a hurry
Don't you think it's time you realized
There's a whole lot more to life than work and worry
The sweetest things in life are free
And there right before your eyes

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Before you went to work this morning in the city
Did you spent some time with your family
Did you kiss your wife and tell her that she's pretty
Did you take your children to your breast and love them tenderly

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Did you ever take a walk through the forest
Stop and dream a while among the trees
Well you can look up through the leaves right straight to heaven
You can almost hear the voice of God
In each any every breeze

You got to Stop and Smell the Roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't Stop and Smell the Roses along the way

You got to Stop and Smell the roses
You've got to count your many blessings everyday
You're gonna find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don't Stop and Smell the roses along the way

Start my days with this song every day. Had a patient who knew he only had a few years despite his valiant fight with a returning cancer. His wife saw me later smelling the flower arrangements in the lobby. She told me to always stop to smell the roses. So much, we take life for granted; but we should always take time to do something every day to appreciate the time we have.

That's beautiful.
I can't say I listen to it every day, but I do quite often.
Then when I do, it's the only song I hear in my head every day for weeks.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful story.🥰

RIP, Mac Davis. I will smell the roses every day in your honor.

When I was in 6th grade, my teacher, recommended this song to the class. This song was on the charts then. Words of wisdom just as pertinent today as then (over 45 years ago). RIP, Mac Davis.

Cheryl Waits

R I P Mac! Heaven gained another talented brilliant soul......😥😥😥🙏🙏🙏🙏 Prayers for The Davis Family and Friends!!!

Doc Severinsen suggested that Mac Davis write a song using the phrase "stop and smell the roses"; and for his suggestion, Davis gave Severinsen co-writer's credit and half the royalties. That's class and kindness and being a top-notch human being. Rest in peace and light, Mr Davis.
