Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
I learned this song at a few years back, so I may have it a bit wrong, but I think I learned it like this:

Rose, rose, rose, red,
Will I ever see thee wed?
I will marry at thy will, sir,
At thy will.

Heigh ho, anybody home,
Feed nor drink nor money have I known,
Still I will be marry, married,
Heigh ho, anybody home.

America, America,
Let us tell you how we feel,
You have given us your treasures,
And we love you still.

Ding, Dong, Ding, Dong.
Wedding bells on an Easter morn.
Carve your name on a moss covered stone,
On a moss covered stone.

Oh, poor bird,
Take thy flight,
High above the sorrows
of this sad night.

There were a couple of verses in Hebrew(?) after that.
