Roses are red my love violets are blue
Sugar is sweet my love but not as sweet as you

A long long time ago on graduation day
You handed me your book I signed this way

Roses are red my love...

We dated through school and when the big day came
I wrote into your book next to my name

Roses are red my love...

Then I went far away and you found someone new
I read your letter dear and I wrote back to you

Roses are red my love violets are blue
Sugar is sweet my love good luck may God bless you

Is that your little girl she looks a lot like you
Some day some boy will write in her book too

Roses are red my love...
