I need a song by the primitives;  I know some of it:  Old age is a beautiful flower blooming from young tender buds.

"THE FLOWERS WE LOVE"

PET-ALS ARE FADING, HANDLE WITH CARE
THESE ARE THE FLOWERS WE LOVE

VERSE: 1

DADDY'S HEALTH IS FADIN',MAMA'S NOY STRONG
GONE ARE THE DAYS FILLED WITH LAUGHTER AND SONG
RUBIES AND DIAMONDS, NONE CAN COMPARE
GOLD MIXED WITH SILVER HAS COVERED THEIR HAIR

CHORUS:

OLD-----AGE IS A BEAUTIFUL FLOWER
BLOOMING FROM YOUNG TENDER BUDS,
PET--ALS ARE FADING, HANDLE WITH CARE,
THESE ARE THE FLOWERS WE LOVE.

BREAK:

VERSE: 2

PET--ALS ARE FADING, DADDY GROWS WEAK
MAMA PRAYS SOFTLY WITH A TEAR ON HER CHEEK
BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS, WONDERFUL THINGS
CROSSING DEATH'S VALLEY IS ONLY A DREAM

REPEAT CHORUS:

TAG:

OLD---AGE IS A BEAUTIFUL FLOWER,
THESE ARE THE ONES THAT WE LOVE


HOPE THIS HELPS, GOD BLESS!!

I have been trying to find the words and possibly even a recording of this song for some time now and finally came across this site today.

Does anyone happen to have any ideas where I could find a recording of this?

I have looked at amazon, iTunes, etc.

My parents wanted me to find a copy of this but I have never been able to find one.
