About American Beauty Rose

"American Beauty Rose" is a 1950 song written by Hal David, Redd Evans and Arthur Altman, which was a minor hit for Eddy Howard and for Frank Sinatra in 1950. It was also popularized by Sinatra's second version as a charting single in 1961. Composer and critic Alec Wilder mentioned the song in passing in his book American Popular Song: The Great Innovators, 1900–1950, noting that " Sinatra could make every song but "Jealous Lover" and "American Beauty Rose" sound reputable."

Daisy is darling, Iris is sweet
Lily is lovely, Blossom's a treat
Of all the sweethearts - a guy could meet
Well I finally chose an American beauty rose

Camelia's tragic, she can't be mine
Magnolia's magic, it makes Maggie shine
Laurel will hug you, Orchid's divine
Still I finally chose an American beauty rose

She's clingier than Ivy, and she's zingier than black-eyed Susan
And springier than Mabel in June
I'm daffy as a daffodil, it's laughable the way I thrill 
When roses are in bloom

Pansy is pretty, Willow is tall
Violet's kisses, tulips (two lips) recall (Violet's kiss is Tulip's recall)
How can I choose one, I love 'em all
Still I finally chose an American beauty rose
