Perry Como – Ivy Rose lyrics

Ivy Rose, Ivy Rose
I'm in love with you
Cling to me, cling to me
Like a vine
I'll be yours when
Tonight is a memory
I'll be yours and
You'll always be mine

As the years disappear
In the twilight of time
With a sigh
We will fondly recall

All the plans that we made
How we kissed unafraid
In the shade of
The old ivy wall


Hand in hand as we stand
Neath the old campus moon
Make believe that
Tomorrow is here

Picture me close to you
In a dream house for two
Where the ivy grows
Greener each year

    When my father came to canada from italy in the 1950's this song was on the radio. Perry como was one of his favorite singers. He and my mother married in the late 50's and I was born a year later. He named me ivana rosa for the song.
    My dad passed away 5 years ago and I was compelled to find these lyrics. They are beautiful and obviously expressed the deep love that he felt for my mother. Thank you for posting this.
