Red Roses for a Blue Lady
Vaughn Monroe Lyrics


I want some red roses for a blue lady
Mister florist take my order please
We had a silly quarrel the other day
I hope these pretty flowers chase her blues away

Wrap up some red roses for a blue lady
Send them to the sweetest girl in town (the sweetest girl in town)
And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown
(She would be so lovely to see)
(What a happy day that will be)

Wrap up some red roses for a blue lady (my lovely lady)
And send them to the sweetest girl in town
And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown

She will be so lovely on her wedding day

The best version of the song by any artist-- Vaughn and his orchestra were at their very best!

CW Gerig

Vaughn Monroe, " the guy with muscles in his voice"

How serene and relaxing. Vaughan Monroe,
[1911-1978] died aged 61 after stomach surgery for a bleeding ulcer. (The song I most remember him by is RACING WITH THE MOON.) The song presented here was written in 1948 by Sid Tepper and Roy Brodsky, and was first recorded the same year by a character actor, vocalist, and radio announcer named John Laurenz, with little success. But Monroe's 1949 cover version peaked at #2 on the Billboard chart.
My favorite version of this oft-recorded gem is by Al Martino.

Bert Kaempfert did a great job in his arrangement for this song.

I want some red roses for a blue lady
Mister florist take my order please
We had a silly quarrel the other day
I hope these pretty flowers chase her blues away
I want some red roses for a blue lady
Send them to the sweetest gal in town
And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown
We had a silly quarrel the other day
I hope these pretty flowers chase her blues away
I want some red roses for a blue, blue lady
Send them to the sweetest gal in town
And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown
Your best white orchid for her wedding gown
