Love is a rose
But you better not pick it
It only grows when it's on the vine.
A handful of thorns and
You'll know you've missed it
You lose your love
When you say the word "mine".

I wanna see what's never been seen,
I wanna live that age old dream.
Come on, lads, we can go together
Let's take the best right now,
Take the best right now.

I wanna go to an old hoe-down
Long ago in a western town.
Pick me up cause my feet are draggin'
Give me a lift and I'll hay your wagon.

Love is a rose
But you better not pick it
It only grows when it's on the vine.
A handful of thorns and
You'll know you've missed it
You lose your love
When you say the word "mine".
Mine, mine.

Love is a rose, love is a rose.
Love is a rose, love is a rose.
