When You Wore a Tulip and I Wore a Big Red Rose lyrics – music by Percy Wenrich, lyrics by Jack Mahoney, performed by Gene Kelly and Judy Garland in For Me and My Gal
I met you in a garden in an old Kentucky town.
The sun was shining down.
You wore a gingham gown.
I kissed you as I placed a yellow tulip in your hair.
Upon my coat, you pinned a rose so rare.
Time has not changed your loveliness. You’re just as sweet to me.
I love you, yet I can’t forget the days that used to be.
