The Dransfield brothers recorded a lovely flower song. Man loves woman, woman rejects man, man dies of grief, who would have imagined?
The last verse goes;
Dig me my grave, dig it long wide and deep
And let me lie down there and take a long sleep
And that's the best way to forget her.
There's a nice song by David Laing called My Flowers that is all about flowers, comparing flowers to beautiful women rather than the other way around. I could get the words off of the album...
