My love said to me
"A hero you'll be
If you bring me the rose of love"
So, today I must go where the wide rivers flow
Down from the hills above
From beginning to end
Who will guide me, my friend
For the difficult task that she chose?
Will the sun and the rain
From whose bosom I came
Show me the way to The Rose?
For my true love I yearn
But I'll never, ever return
Till I find where that red lady grows
When I find her, I'll sing
And the mission bells will ring
The news that I've captured The Rose
