Would you like to wear a poppy As you go on your way?
Would you care to wear a poppy? It’s the flower of the day.
It has a special meaning Of devotion tried and true.
Would you please wear a poppy We’re offering it to you.
It’s a very special flower So bright and red and gay.

Be proud to wear a poppy, It tells a story true.
Please wear it just as proudly As we who offer it to you.
We accept whate’er you give As thousands of us say,
