Lyrics:(johnny wilson, gene dobbins, wayne sharpe)

[spoken]

Well, i had two weeks
vacation comin', so i thought i'd drive down to florida: spend some time with an old friend, date a
few girls, make a few parties, and just kinda live it up again.

So i packed up my car,
and then i called my mom in tennesee, and told her what i planned to do. she said, "son, are
you comin' by?" and i said, "mom, i'm really pushed for time, b
Ll see you in a week
or two."

And i was drivin' through this little town in georgia when i remembered:
today's mama's birthday. well, i thought i'll just stop and wire some flowers. shouldn't take too
long; then i'll be on m
.

So i walked in a flower shop and the first thing i saw was
this little boy, with his eyes full a' tears. i said, "what's wrong, son?" he said,
"mama loves roses. and today's her b
Ay, and i haven't seen her in almost a
year."

[chorus]
Roses for mama
Today's her birthday
Roses for
mama
Today's her birthday

He said, "i live with grandma now. but i promised
mama some roses, 'cause i talk to her all the time. i wanted to give her five, 'cause that's how old
i am. but the lady said i couldn't buy
With just a dime."

Well, the little
fella's story kind a' touched my heart, so i told the lady to give him what he wanted and charge it
to me. then i told her i needed to wire a dozen roses to my mama, up in chape
L,
tennessee.

I looked around, and the little boy was gone. but all of a sudden the door
flew open and he come runnin' back in and he said, "mister, i forgot to thank you for the
roses." he smiled,
Ook my hand, and ran back out again.

Well, i started on out
of town. and i was feelin' real proud of myself for thinkin' of my mama and really carin', when i
looked out the window and i saw that same little boy, kneelin', by a grav
An old cemetery.


I stopped my car and walked over to where the little boy was kneelin' down. and he smiled up
at me and said, "this is where my mama stays. she says she sure does thank you for these
pretty
." well that's when i had to walk away.

And i drove straight back to
that flower shop and i said, "lady, have you sent those flowers to tennessee?" she said,
"no, not yet." i said, "well, nevermind. i'll just
Them back with me."


[chorus]
Roses for mama
Today's her birthday
Roses for mama
Today's her
birthday
