Flower Man

Chris Nandor

Flower man on the corner
You saved my life again
I screwed up, and I'm in a rush
Have you got change for a ten?

Sometimes you don't speak English
Sometimes you don't dress well
And your flowers aren't the best around
But right now you've got the most beautiful flowers in town

These flowers that you sold to me
Five dollars; sometimes, more
Are nothing compared to the look that I see
When Jennifer opens the door

Flower man on the corner
I've said all that can be said
I'm just glad, when I came to your corner
That the traffic light turned red
