Kenny Rogers Buy Me A Rose Lyrics

Last updated: 11/04/2012 12:19:44 PM

He works hard to give her all he thinks she wants
A three car garage, her own credit cards
he pulls in late to wake her up with a kiss goodnight
if he could only read her mind she'd say:

buy me a rose, call me from work,
open a door for me what would it hurt
show me you love me by the look in your eyes
these are the little things i need the most in my life.

now the days have grown to years of feeling all alone
and she cant help but wonder what she's doing wrong
cause lately she'd try anything to turn his head
would it make a difference if she said:

buy me a rose, call me from work,
open a door for me what would it hurt
show me you love me by the look in your eyes
these are the little things i need most in my life...

and the more that he lives the less that he tries
to show her the love that he holds inside
and the more that she gives the more that he sees
this is a story of you and me

so i brought you a rose on the way home from work
to open the door to a heart that i hurt
and i hope you notice the look in my eyes
cause im gonna make things right
for the rest of your life
im gonna hold you tonight
do all those little things
for the rest of your life

To Kathryne Ann-
The lyrics you just posted are from Luther's version of the song. Luther's song is similar but has some differences. These Lyrics are correct for Kenny's song.

My story-
My husband was part of Florida school for the deaf and blind's Dance Troupe. The troupe travels throughout florida and some parts of ga and alabama. During the final performance before he graduated, he signed that song to me. I was pregnant with our son at the time. Almost 6 years later, we are still together and now have 4 children. He still signs that song to me during our anniversaries or even on valentines' day.

This is the first english song i have ever heard since coming to australia. I found out who sung it (kenny rogers) and simply fell in love with his other songs. Islands in the stream is a great duet that my bestfriend and i sing together at pubs. We both know off by heart!!!!!

Never forget Kenny Rogers and his beautiful voice.

The second line of your lyrics should NOT read:
" A three car garage, her own credit cards".
The second line should read:
" But it tears her apart, for nothing is from the heart"
