Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
I never thought of singing 'Ah Poor Bird' and the Rose round together - I bet that sounds beautiful :-)

I learned a different version to the rose round, which I only remember imperfectly. There was only one verse, which went something like:

Rose, rose, rose red
Whenever shall I see thee wed?
I will marry at your will (I'm sure that's not quite right)
When I am dead.

I've no idea where I learned this. Definitely not a family song - perhaps it was something we sang at school.
