A Turd Blossom Fell 

A blossom fell from off a tree
It settled softly on the lips you turned to me
The gypsies say and I know why
"a falling blossom only touches lips that lie"

A blossom fell, and very soon
I saw you kissing someone new beneath the moon
I thought you loved me, you said you loved me
We planned together to dream forever
The dream has ended, for true love died
The night a blossom fell and touched two lips that lied

--Nat King Cole, "A Blossom Fell"
