Plus I’m a jerk
who should be dead
But here’s the thing
By my asking
a rose now grows

  1. Very nicely done, though it’s been long enough since I watched the movie that I did not catch the reference. Congratulations on the nomination for the award.

    1. Thank you, Michael! I added the link when my wife looked at me and said she didn’t get it, either. It made perfect sense to me. 😉 It is a fun song, though, so I enjoyed adding the link to the video.
