You said “no flowers” So I brought you none But I’ll plant you hundreds Before this year is done You said “no presents” And I understand I’ll give you nothing you can Hold in your hands CHORUS You’re better with bows and ribbons and curls, anyway And everything soon becomes something to be put away I give you my shoulder, I give you my hand I give you myself For as long as you can stand You once said “no cards” So I wrote this all out With some time and a magnifying glass You’ll figure it out You said “nothing sweet” From the candy store shelves So let’s get everything wrong as we Try to make it ourselves CHORUS I asked you please do You said I will All these days later you said You do still All of the presents We need today Stood by our side as we Said what we wanted to say
