Roses Are Red (My Love) - Bobby Vinton
A hitless Vinton was about to be dropped by Epic, when he found this song in a reject pile and asked to be given one more chance. He recorded it as an R&B tune. "It was the worst sounding thing you ever heard in your life," he admits. The label agreed to a second session with a new arrangement, added strings and a vocal choir and the result was a No. 1 on the Hot 100.

LYRICS:
A long, long time ago
On graduation day
You handed me your book
I signed this way
"Roses are red, my love
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet, my love
But not as sweet as you"
We dated through high school
And when the big day came
I wrote into your book
Next to my name
"Roses are red, my love
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet, my love
But not as sweet as you" (as sweet as you)
Then I went far away
And you found someone new
I read your letter, dear
And I wrote back to you
"Roses are red, my love
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet, my love
Good luck, may god bless you" (may god bless you)
Is that your little girl?
She looks a lot like you
Someday some boy will write
In her book, too
"Roses are red, my love
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet, my love
But not as sweet as you" (roses are red)

Songwriters: Al Byron / Paul Evans
