    Lyrics

    (Carl Story - Shirl Lyn - Carl Smith)

    The orchid is a flower that blooms so tenderly
    To thrill the fairest lady of the land
    If placed beside a blushing rose the rose cannot compare
    But how was such as I to understand.

    I overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose
    The orchid that I overlooked was you
    The rose that I was searching for has proved to be untrue
    The orchid now I find my dear was you.

    --- Instrumental ---

    The rose has lost its color but the orchid is the same
    And I'm alone to face these lonely years
    I didn't see the orchid I was searching for a rose
    And now I pay the price with bitter tears.

    I overlooked an orchid while searching for a rose
    The orchid that I overlooked was you
    The rose that I was searching for has proved to be untrue
    The orchid now I find my dear was you...
