‘Leave the flowers for the table’

Leave the flowers for the table, boy,
leave the chocolates in the pantry.
Take your case and get to work;
hold your fancies off til Sundays,

then distract yourself with unknowns
and live a life of maybes.
Leave the flowers for the table, boy,
keep your heart no more than sundry.
