Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Bring Me a Rose (Ernie Sheldon)
Subject: If You Love Me - Malvina Reynolds^^^
Boy, Is this similar to Malvina's "If you love me," or what?

If - you - love - me, if you love love love me
Plant a rose for me
If you think you'll love me for a long long time
Plant an apple tree.

The sun will shine, the wind will blow,
The rain will fall and the tree will grow,
And whether you comes, or whether you goes
I'll have an apple, and I'll have a rose,
Lovely to bite and nice to my nose,
and every jiucy nibble will be
A sweet reminder of the time you loved me,
And planted a rose for me
...and an apple tree.^^^
