Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
When I went to camp I learned it like this. We started with the "Rose" tune and wnet into "Thou poor bird"

Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose
Shall I ever see thee wed
I shall marry at thy will, Sire
At thy will

Hey ho, nobody home
Meat nor drink nor money have I none
Yet I shall be merry
Hey ho, nobody home

Thou poor bird
Take thy flight
High above the sorrows
Of this dark night.

That's just what I learned, and I have no idea how that song came to that camp, the origin, ect.
