Peony Perfection

September 1, 2011 § 1 Comment

Peonies make me especially happy to be a girl. They are so beautiful, delicate, dainty, and sweet. If I could have a fresh vase of peonies around me every day, I am convinced it would make my life that much better. Peonies are not only beautiful and fun in every day settings, but are amazing and stunning for weddings. Enjoy my peony love fest.

The Peony Bush
(Meredith Willson – as recorded by Danny Kaye)

‘Twas the peony bush there in my garden
That made you turn around and smile at me.
Not the zinnias or gardenias with their fragrant perfume,
Forget-me-nots in fancy pots or orchids in-a bloom;
But the peony bush there in my garden
It did the trick as quick as one-two-three.
Please decorate my garden gate forever
And never will there be any bush.
But the peony bush for me.

Every rose, every tree, every bird and bee
Seem to rate a rondolet or two.
So a slight poetic push for my favorite bush
Would seem to be long overdue.

‘Twas the peony bush there in my garden
That made you turn around and smile at me.
Not the zinnias or gardenias with their fragrant perfume,
Forget-me-nots in fancy pots or orchids in-a bloom;
But the peony bush there in my garden
It did the trick as quick as one-two-three.
Please decorate my garden gate forever
And never will there be any bush,
But the peony bush for me.

transcribed by ear from Danny Kaye – Cocktail Hour
