Dead Flowers Lyrics - The Rolling Stones

Review The Song (3)



(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

Well when you're sitting there in your silk upholstered chair
Talkin' to some rich folk that you know
Well I hope you won't see me in my ragged company
Well, you know I could never be alone

Take me down little Susie, take me down
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Well when you're sitting back in your rose pink Cadillac
Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day
Ah, I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon
And another girl to take my pain away

Take me down little Susie, take me down
sponsored links
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Take me down little Susie, take me down
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the U.S. Mail
Say it with dead flowers in my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave
No, I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Hey, guitarzan.. the fellas comment wasn't disputing the lyrics grammatical correctness. He was saying that the actual lyric is "at my wedding".. not "in". I'm sure he didn't need a lesson in interpreting music. Anywho, one of my favorite tuneskis here.. worth checkin out in Towne van Zandt's cover from "Road Songs" .

Take'r easy



The hidden truths in songs........... | Reviewer: Guitarzan | 4/27/10

Good point Hanne-- Yes, in real life "At my wedding" would be grammatically correct. But we're dealing with a song here, and one of the most interesting aspects (IMHO) about a song is, it does not have to be grammatically correct. Or accurately follow the guidelines that we expect from everyday things & people in our lives! In fact, (IMHO) Songwriters have license to kill. The language anyway. Because a song is a story set to music to be entertaining when told, it's allowed to jump from 3rd person to 1st, personify things we usually don't & generally violate any rule it feels like. All for the sake of entertainment. Why, if it had to obey those rules we'd be crying instead of laughing when we hear "Santa got run over by his reindeer" and that wouldn't be any fun. Ain't it great? Gotta love it! This ought to generate a few responses! LOL!
I can only assume they were referring to typo's & grammatical errors in the transposed version of the song when asking for any "errors" to be reported. But, What do I know?



Dead Flowers . error? | Reviewer: Hanne | 8/6/07

I first experienced Dead Flowers and Mick Jagger at a fabulous concert last night in Copenhagen and had to have the lyrics.

Last verse: ...in my wedding...

Should it be ...at my wedding...?

Beautiful performance by Mick.
