No matter where I roam
I will return to my English rose
For no bonds can ever tempt me from she
I've sailed the seven seas
Flown the whole blue sky
But I've returned with haste
To where my love does lie
No matter where I go
I will come back to my English rose
For nothing can ever tempt me from she
I've searched the secret mists
I've climbed the highest peaks
And caught the wild wind home
To hear her soft voice speak
No matter where I roam
I will return to my English rose
For no bonds can ever keep me from she

Been to ancient worlds (been to ancient worlds
I've scoured the whole universe
And caught the first train home
To be at her side
No matter where I roam
I will return to my english rose
For no bonds can ever keep me from she
