Lyrics Print

It has always been hard for me to pick favorites
I see little as uniquely best
Any entry in the contest
I will deliberately find a way to savor it

At times I've been able to calculate
And wholly appraise a thing
And find it most astonishing
Enough to actually delineate

I can pick a favorite flower
The distinct bouquet of the Pawpaw
Its originality -- all in all
The brownish-purple sheep of flowers

It's barely above average in any category
In fact I'd imagine most would find it dull
But I find it so beautiful
It reigns alone in uncharted territory

But who doesn't love to smell a rose
I am the Don Juan of that breed
Who doesn't love to smell a rose
The Secret: color and scent in league

So many roses are a Double Delight

Pawpaw is the favorite flower I chose
But I'll always wanna stop and smell a rose
 
You might ask why I think the Pawpaw's great
In reality there's nothing to justify
It's just my preference but I
Am happy to try to demonstrate

It's the starter of uniquely flavored fruit
Though I've honestly never tasted that
So I can't really hang my hat
On something you could so easily dispute

But I am more than perfectly sure
Many of you never heard of it before
And so here is where I will implore
You to please go and explore

There's something there to find

But who doesn't love to smell a rose
I am the Don Juan of that breed
Who doesn't love to smell a rose
The Secret: color and scent in league

So many roses are a Double Delight

Pawpaw is the favorite flower I chose
But I'll always wanna stop and smell a rose

Pawpaw is the favorite flower I chose
But I'll always wanna stop and smell a rose
