Orange Flower

Orange Flower
Lyrics:

Are you gonna rum-tum-tumble with me, darlin’?

Cause if not, you should leave me alone.

 

He gave me an orange flower.

What. What in the hell does that mean?

Am I halfway to red, and halfway to yellow?

Am I his mother, or his lover?

Or somewhere in the middle?!

 

I’ve been walking around in circles.

I tell myself, ‘ I’m not confused; I should know this.’

I went with him to dinner and didn’t even pay.

Then he called me “dude” the next day.

 

I don’t want to spend my money on another fool

I don’t want to. I don’t want to.

I’ve been there. I’ve done that.

I don’t want to spend my time contemplating you

So what am I to do?

 

But maybe we won’t go that far. Maybe we don’t get that low.

I don’t care where we go. I just want him calling.

Maybe we don’t reach for stars.

Maybe we don’t slide that slope.

But I don’t care where we go. I just want him calling.

 

My grandma told me to pray to God about it

and I believe her, cause that works for me sometimes.

But do I really want him? Or would I rather be a loner?

Or can I call myself an independent woman of my century?

 

All that I’m saying’s I don’t want to sped my money on another fool

I don’t want to. I’ve been there. I’ve done that.

I don’t want to spend my time contemplating you.

So what am I to do?

 

But maybe we won’t go that far

And maybe we won’t get that low.

But I don’t care where we go. I just want him calling.

Maybe we don’t catch that ride

Maybe we don’t slide that slope

I don’t care where we go. I just want him calling.

 

Yeah, I don’t care where we go

I don’t care where we go

I don’t care where we go

I just want him calling.

 

I don’t care where we go

I don’t care where we go

I don’t care where we go

 

I just want him calling.

I just want him calling.

 

I just want him calling, not an orange flower.
