The Greenfly And The Rose (Calvert Robert)

All good things must end The straightest rose will bend Its colours droop and wilt Just like a love affair The Pink Sensation fades The Sterling Silver fades The Virgo and Blue Moon Soon they're just wrinkled things The Baccara The flame red Superstar Forever yours A rose called Peace At night the aphids dream A micro-locust's dream They eat the world alive There's not a morsel left They eat the jungle leaves Consume the wheat-field sheaves The eat the flowers and plants They eat their stalks as well As their tiny jaws Munch on plan and cause Their complex eyes Examine the skies They eat the cumuli Marshmallow of the sky They eat away the blue And they eat the Sun and Moon They swallow all the stars And both the moons of Mars They lick the plate of space They lick their lips as well The Baccara The flame red Superstar Forever yours A rose called Peace The Greenfly and the Rose The Greenfly and the Rose The Greenfly and the Rose The Greenfly and the Rose The Greenfly and the Rose The Greenfly and the Rose The Greenfly and the Rose The Greenfly and the Rose
