GUEST,Steve Gardham Lyr Req: Wild Rose / Heidenröslein (Goethe) (43) RE: Req: Wild Red Rose of May on the moorland growing 28 Apr 08


Many of those songs we sang in music lessons in the 50s were foreign translations, Marianina (Italian I think), Red rose, Paul's Little Hen (Norwegian). I have the original booklets somewhere, produced by the BBC for 'Singing Together' programmes.

Once there was a wild rose gay on the moorland growing,
But a careless boy at play chanced to see the tempting spray
On the moorland gro-o-owing
Soft red rose, red rose so gay, on the moorla-and gro-o-owing.
