violets for your furs lyrics – billie holiday

it was winter
in manhattan
falling snowflakes
ffilled 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 within 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 like dew
on the blossoms
as on a summer day

you bought me
violets for my furs
and there was blue
in the wintry sky
you pinned
the violets to my furs
and gave a lift
to the crowds p*ssing 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
