Paiting The Roses Red / March Of The Cards Lyrics 

Paiting The Roses Red / March Of The Cards Song Lyrics


THE CARDS:
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!

Oh, Painting the roses red
And many a tear we shed

THREE OF CLUBS:
Because we know

TWO & THREE OF CLUBS:
They'll cease to grow

ACE OF CLUBS:
In fact they'll soon be dead!

ALL CARDS:
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 OF CLUBS (SPOKEN):
Well the fact is, miss
We planted the white roses by mistake!
And...

ALL CARDS:
The queen
She likes them red
If she saw white instead
She'd raise her voice
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!

ALICE:
Painting the roses red...

ALL:
We're painting the roses red!

Don't tell the queen that's what you've seen
Or tell her what we've said!
We're painting the roses red

ALICE:
Yes, painting the roses red!

ACE:
Not pink...

THREE OF CLUBS:
Not green...

ALICE:
Not aquamarine!

ALL:
We're painting the roses red!
