Artificial Flowers Lyrics - Bobby Darin

Review The Song (4)

Alone in the world was poor little Anne
As sweet a young child as you'd find.
Her parents had gone to their final reward
Leavin' their baby behind.

(Did you hear?)
This poor little child was only nine years of age
when mother and dad went away;
Still she brav-el-y worked
At the one thing she knew
to earn her few pennies a day.

She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers,
Flowers for ladies of fashion to wear;
She made artificial flowers, you know those artificial flowers,
Fashioned from Annie's despair.

With paper and shears, with some wire and wax
She made up each tulip and 'mum.
As snowflakes drifted into her tenement room
Her baby little fingers grew numb.

From makin' artificial flowers, those artificial flowers
Flowers for ladies of high fashion to wear.
She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
Made from Annie's despair.

They found little Annie all covered with ice
Still clutchin' her poor frozen shears
Amidst all the blossoms she had fashioned by hand
And watered with all her young tears.

There must be a heaven where little Annie can play
In heavenly gardens and bowers.
And instea-a-ad of a halo she'll wear 'round her head
A garland of genuine flowers.

No more artificial flowers;
Throw away those artificial flowers,
Flowers for ladies of society to wear.
Throw away those artificial flowers,
Those dum-dum flowers,
Fashioned from Annie's,
Fashioned from A-a-a-annie's
(Give her the real thing!)

Artificial Flowers reply to Dick Metafora | Reviewer: Garry | 11/2/14

I am not sure what we were thinking in the late fifties i just wish we had that music today instead of a cascade of drivel and foul language that people call music in this day & age Artificial Flowers is a lovely song that makes you feel happy and sad and sang by a true pro, as for mack the knife it is what it is a song about the Mafia
what are we going to do just pretend these people don't exist,a bad person comes to a sticky end and even more to the point we are still listening and enjoying this music today 60 years on you are lucky if any of these so called singers last a year these days please think about your comments before you bad mouth true professionals of the music industry

What's so koo-koo-kool? | Reviewer: Dick Metafora | 12/6/13

Lemme see, A nine year old orphan freezes to death while peddling her tragic flowers, made from her despair, no less, and Wow does the D-Man put on that zippidy doo ring-a-ding style to it. WTF? Add this to "Mack the Knife" for unbelievably moronic approaches to serial murders and child poverty. What the hell were we thinking in the late 50s?

Great Christmas Song | Reviewer: jayjay | 12/25/07

I always liked this song and especially BobbY Darin's rendition.

In a way it reminds me of a child labor poem that went something like...

The factory is so near the golf course
That almost any day
All the CHILDREN hard at work there
Can see the the MEN at play!!
