(Roses are red my love violets are blue)
A long long time ago on graduation day you handed me your book I signed this way
Roses are red my love violets are blue sugar is sweet my love but not as sweet as you
We dated through school and when the big day came
I wrote into your book next to my name
Roses are red my love violets are blue sugar is sweet my love but not as sweet as you
Is that your little girl she looks so much like you
Some day some boy will write in her book too
Roses are red my love violets are blue sugar is sweet my love but not as sweet as you
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
