Just Ask Flowers Lyrics

Off-Broadway musical
Here Lies Love the Musical - Just Ask Flowers Lyrics


AURORA AQUINO:
When I asked my son
What do you want to be?
I was a little surprised
When he said to me

"I wanna' be a drummer, mom
I wanna' be a drummer
I gotta' call the people, mom
And get 'em all together

I wanna' be a drummer, mom
I wanna' be a drummer
I gotta' call the people, mom
And get 'em all together"

Now I watch the procession
As his body goes by
Half the country is here
But they won't see me cry

Ten thousand or more
And they've waited for hours
When I asked why are you here
They said, "Just ask the flowers"
They said, "Just ask the flowers"

Yeah just ask the flowers
Tama na, sobra na
We put up with so much
But this is going too far

"I wanna' be a drummer, mom
I wanna' be a drummer
I gotta' call the people, mom
And get 'em all together

I wanna' be a drummer, mom
I wanna' be a drummer
I gotta' call the people, mom
And get 'em all together"

It was a hero's procession
Now it's more than one man
And my son was a drummer
This I now understand

That day something was born
In those afternoon showers
And the reason they're here
You need just ask the flowers

Just ask the flowers
Yeah just ask the flowers
Tama na, sobra na
We put up with so much
But this is going too far

"I wanna' be a drummer, mom
I wanna' be a drummer
I gotta' call the people, mom
And get 'em all together

I wanna' be a drummer, mom
I wanna' be a drummer
I gotta' call the people, mom
And get 'em all together"
