As I was walkin' down rub-a-dub square
From another direction she was calling my eye
Might as well try
She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes
She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls

As everything works out the way it does in this song
In the strangest of places if you look at it right
It was the summer of love and I thank the stars above
And just to gain her trust, I bought a microbus

We toured to the north, south, east and west
We sold some ecstasy,
And now I hear the police coming after me
The one scarlet with the flowers in her hair

All scarlet begonias and a touch of the blues
I had to learn the hard way just to let her pass by, let her pass by
