Dead Flowers
(Mick Jagger and Keith Richards)

When you're sitting there
in your silk upholstered chair
talking to some rich folk that you know,
I hope you don't see me in my ragged company
You know I could never be alone.

Take me down little Suzie, 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
Send me dead flowers at 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,
I'll be in my basement room with a needle and a spoon
and another boy to keep my blues away.

Take me down little Suzie, 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 at my wedding
and I won't forget to put roses on your grave.

Take me down little Suzie, 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 at my wedding
and I won't forget to put roses on your grave.
