Who Said "Romance Was Dead"

A MILLION ROSES

Based on a romantic pop hit from Soviet times, a Kazakh man has ordered one million red roses for his wife on International Women's Day that will be observed on Thursday.

The man had a spat with his wife and sought to make up to her, according to the Express-K.kz news website.

The order for one million Dutch-grown roses was placed with a florist in Kyzylorda city in Kazakhstan and is to be delivered on Thursday.

Local prices for roses on International Women's Day ranged from 500 to 2,000 Tenge ($3 to $13) per flower, which means the one-million order could cost the caring husband between $3 million and $13 million.

The 'Million Roses' song was popularised by Soviet pop diva Alla Pugacheva in 1982.

The song, which tells a story of an artist trying to win a woman's heart through the gift of flowers, sold over six million copies as a single.

English Translation.

Once upon the time there was a painter He had a little house and canvas But he loved an actress who loved flowers He then sold his home Sold his paintings and his shelter And with all the money he bought a whole sea of flowers

A million of scarlet roses From the window you can see The one, who is seriously in love, transforms his life into flowers for you

A million of scarlet roses From the window you can see The one, who is seriously in love, transforms his life into flowers for you

In the morning, you stand at the window Maybe you've gone crazy As in a continuation of a dream The plaza is full of flowers Your soul grows cold What rich man is making fun by here? But under the window, almost breathless, the poor painter stands

A million of scarlet roses From the window you can see The one, who is seriously in love, transforms his life into flowers for you

A million of scarlet roses From the window you can see The one, who is seriously in love, transforms his life into flowers for you

The encounter was short At night, the train carried her away But in her life remained the mad song of roses k The painter kept living alone Many troubles he beared But in his life remained the whole plaza of flowers
