Chorus: Oh, that pretty white rose
That you gave me,
And asked me to wear it for you,
I have that rose still yet,
And never shall forget
To wear it as long as you are true.

On a bright spring day
In the early part of May,
Two little sweethearts like you and me
Strolled and told the story old
Just as we always do.


On the old stone we sit side by side,
With the beautiful streams beneath our feet.
We would whisper words of love
As the sweet birds sang above.
These words, they were low, soft and sweet.
