i overlooked an orchid lyrics – mickey gilley

a orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly
it thrills the fairest lady of the land
if placed beside a blushing rose the rose could not compare
but how was such as i, to understand.

chorus:
i overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose
the orchid that i overlooked was you.
the rose that i was searching for has proved to be untrue
the orchid that i find my dear was you.

— instrumental —

the rose has lost it’s color, but the orchid stays the same
and i’m alone to face these lonely years
i didn’t see the orchid, i was searching for a rose
and now i pay the price with bitter tears.

chorus:
i overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose
the orchid that i overlooked was you
the rose that i was searching for has proved to be untrue
the orchid that i find my dear was you.

the orchid that i find my dear was you…
