Remembering Adam
Yellow Roses
Home

My favourite song of Adam's is from his second album - 'Adam Faith'. The song is called 'Little Yellow Roses'. He also sang it when he was a guest star on a Maria Callas TV show.
I loved this song so much that I have grown yellow roses ever since, although the song, of course, refers to wild, not garden roses.

Little Yellow Roses
 
Laid on my back with the sun in my eyes.
Soon I shall know what no living man knows.
All of my life's been a fight against lies,
Death brings the truth, and it's my turn to go.
 
Send my mother a lock of my hair.
Send my father the watch that he gave me.
Tell my brother to follow me if he dare.
Tell them I'm lost now and no one can save me.
 
Remember, remember
Send my love little yellow roses.
 
My father taught me that all men were equal,
Whatever colour, religion or land,
Taught me to fight for the things I believe in,
That's what I did - with a gun in my hand.
 
Send my mother a lock of my hair.
Send my father the watch that he gave me.
Tell my brother to follow me if he dare.
Tell them I'm lost now and no man can save me.
 
Remember, remember
Send my love little yellow roses.
 
I met my love in a garden of roses.
She pricked her finger so sharp the thorn grows.
We  made a promise that till death should part us
We'd never look on a wild yellow rose.
 
Send my mother a lock of my hair.
Send my father the watch that he gave me.
Tell my brother to follow me if he dare.
Tell them I'm lost now and no man can save me.
 
Remember, remember
Send my love little yellow roses.
