We danced in the night dear a night of delight dear and I gave a white rose to you
But then in the dawn dear the sun found you gone dear
A white rose may crashed him to do
His love was a rose cast away but what was one rose when you had a bouquet
You laughed at my careing still I go on wearing a white rose in my heart for you
[ piano ]
His love was a rose...
