VIOLETS FOR YOUR FURS
Tom Adair / Matt Dennis


It was winter in Manhattan

Falling snowflakes filled the air

The streets were covered with a film of ice

But a little simple magic that I'd heard about somewhere

Changed the weather all around, just withn a trice



You bought me violets for my furs

And it was spring for a while, remember?

You bought me violets for my furs

And there was april in that december

The snow drifted on the flowers and melted where it lay

The snow looked leke dew on the blossoms

As on a summer day



You bought me violets for my furs

Aand there was blue in the wintry  sky

You pinned the violets to my furs

And gave a lift to the crowds passing by

You smiled at me so sweetly

Since then one thought occurs

That we fell in love completely

The day you bought me violets for my furs
