D            Bm        F#m         Bm
Alone in the world was poor little Anne,
   G             Em7            A7
As sweet a young child as you'd find.
    D           Bm            F#m7    Bm
Her parents had gone to their final reward,
G       Em7   A7     D    A7
Leavin' their baby behind.

     D           Bm             F#m7          Bm
This poor little child was only nine years of age,
     G          Em7       A   A7
when mother and dad went away.
      D           Bm            F#m7          Bm
Still bravely she worked at the one thing she knew,
   G    Em7     A7        D
to earn her few pennies a day.

D7       G   Em7    Gm       D   G      B7
She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers,
G   Em7     A7        D   G      D
Flowers for ladies of fashion to wear.
D7       G   Em7    Gm           Gm7        D   F#m7   B7
She made artificial flowers, you know those artificial flowers,
G     Gm    Em7  A7         D
Fash..ioned from Annie's despair.

With paper and shears, with some wire and wax,
She made up each tulip and mum.
As snowflakes drifted into her tenement room,
Her baby little fingers grew numb.
From makin' artificial flowers, those artificial flowers
Flowers for ladies of high fashion to wear.
She made artificial flowers, artificial flowers
Made from Annie's despair.
They found little Annie all covered in ice,
Still clutchin' her poor frozen shears.
Amidst all the blossoms she had fashioned by hand,
And watered with all her young tears.
There must be a heaven where little Annie can play
In heavenly gardens and bowers.
And instead of a halo she'll wear round her head,
A garland of genuine flowers.
No more artificial flowers;
Throw away those artificial flowers,
Flowers for ladies of society to wear.
Throw away those artificial flowers,
Those dumb-dumb flowers,
Fashioned from Annie's, fashioned from Annie's

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
