You don’t bring me flowers – Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand.

Once upon a time, the one and only time, I found myself in a roles reversed position where I received flowers from a fair maiden.

They were delivered to my workplace and I may have blushed. A fine memory.

Words for today; ‘Used-to-be’s’ just lay on the floor.

More to come; same blog time, same blog channel

Lyrics from Musixmatch

You Don’t Bring Me Flowers

Neil DiamondBarbra Streisand

You don’t bring me flowers
You don’t sing me love songs
You hardly talk to me anymore
When I come through the door at the end of the day

I remember when
You couldn’t wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after lovin’ me late at night

When it’s good for you, babe
And you’re feelin’ alright
Well, you just roll over and turn out the light
And you don’t bring me flowers anymore

It used to be so natural
To talk about forever
But used-to-be’s don’t count anymore
They just lay on the floor till we sweep them away

Baby, I remember
All the things you taught me
I learned how to laugh
And I learned how to cry

Well, I learned how to love
And I learned how to lie
So you’d think I could learn
How to tell you goodbye
You don’t bring me flowers anymore

Well, you’d think I could learn
How to tell you goodbye
You don’t say you need me
And you don’t sing me love songs
You don’t bring me flowers anymore

Songwriters: Bergman Alan, Bergman Marilyn, Diamond Neil Leslie

    • Such a female thing to say Mary. As a gentleman never tells, I will venture that we almost made it.

      • You almost made it, Bruce? Obviously determined to leave it to our imagination. 😉

  2. Ha ha, haven’t seen a flower delivery to a male before. Likely more common these days. Your fair maiden was ahead of her times. Great song.

    • You’re probably right Maureen.
