No Reason Flowers


Lyrics

"No Reason Flowers"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Took her out for dinner and a movie 

About a hundred times or more

Bought her presents for Christmas and her birthday 

And it was such a chore

Got her chocolates and cards every Valentine’s day 

But she just seemed bored

Countless bottles of perfume and jewelry 

That just ended up in her drawer


And although she’s never suffered from my neglect

Nothing ever produced the desired effect… until I sent her


No reason flowers, it was such a simple thing to do

Went to FTD on the internet, in the middle of the afternoon

All I needed was a credit card, her happiness was just a click away

I sent her no reason flowers, and she loves me to this day


Anytime we’re caught up in the daily grind 

I know just what to do

It works like a charm, never does any harm 

I’m here to tell you that it’s tried and true

So all you men pay close attention

Any time you’ve got relationship blues

There’s a sure-fire cure to spice things up with her 

And make it feel brand new


You might be in a rut, but there’s an easy way out

When it rains it pours, so when you’re in a drought, just gotta buy her some


No reason flowers, it’s such a simple thing to do

Just go to FTD on the world wide web, in the middle of the afternoon

All you need is a credit card, her happiness is just a click away

Just send her no reason flowers, and you’ll make her day


After a fight or when I’ve made a mistake 

It never makes her forgive and forget

I’ve learned to get it right, and it never seems fake 

When it’s a time that she’ll never expect


I still give her no reason flowers, it’s such a simple thing to do

I go to FTD on the internet, in the middle of the afternoon

All I need is my credit card, her happiness is just a click away

I send her no reason flowers, and she loves me to this day

Brief Description

This is one of my better songs with commercial potential, both literally and figuratively.  Ever since I wrote it, I've contemplated contacting the FTD marketing department about it, since it would lend itself well to an actual commercial - that is, if recorded by real pros.  My standard rudimentary demo style may not reflect it, but I can envision it working for either contemporary country or as more of an adult rock/pop thing.  This might best be described as a relationship advice song, and it is based on my own real-life research and lessons learned.
