You're trying my patience
Try pink carnations
Red roses, yellow daffodils
Don't forget the flowers
Someday, I know you will

Displays of affection
And all good intentions
Why don't you just send me the bill
Don't forget the flowers
Someday, I know you will

Well, you've been taking me
Way to seriously, ooh
I can't ever explain why
I don't feel your pain, ooh

I left you behind
I know it's been a long time
But I'm not over you
Don't forget the flowers
Someday, I hope I do

You're trying my patience
Try pink carnations
Red roses and yellow daffodils
Don't forget the flowers
Someday, I know I will
Don't forget the flowers
Someday, I know I will

Well, your Grateful Dead bears are missing. I was gonna ask, though, whether someone had dug Jerry up for this song only...

I have a suggestion ... post a suggested playlist for a couple of hours and let's see what you come up with.

Far as I can tell, it'll be a blank page.

Wonderful tune, BTW.

Still my favorite Wilco album (and the first I bought). Saw them on Austin City Limits and was immediately entranced. Kinda sad they are doing volkswagon commercials.
 

First one I bought as well....

Saw them AT Austin City Limits Fest my first year in Austin. They played as the sun set slowly behind them. Fantastic show. Been a big fan ever since
PLEASE no more Wilco!!! {#Stop}

This A Wilco that I love. So far I've willingly followed them through all of their style changes and haven't been disappointed yet.

Posthumous recognition is better than nothing I guess.

i don't think there's a wilco song that would get less than a 7 from me. this one's a 9.
Classic Wilco!
just wanted to say that i'm super excited about this song being added... only because it's one of my favorites ;-)
