When You Wore a Tulip by Percy Wenrich When you wore a tulip, A sweet, yellow tulip, And I wore a big red rose. When you caressed me, It was then Heaven blessed me, What a blessing no one knows. You made life cheery When you called me dearie, 'Twas down where the blue grass grows. Your lips were sweeter than julep, When you wore a tulip, And I wore a big red rose. Midi: When You Wore a Tulip (And what is a julep? It is a sweet drink, popular in the South, made of water, sugar, mint leaves and Kentucky bourbon.)
