Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
Subject: RE:
Here is the song the way I learned it:

Rose, rose, rose, rose
Will I ever see thee wed?
"Aye, marry, that thou will, sir,
That thou will."

Ding, dong, ding, dong
Wedding bell on an April morn
Carve thy name on a moss-covered stone
On a moss-covered stone

"Mother, father, dig my grave
Dig it with a golden spade
Bring two friends and a turtledove
To show that I died
To show that I died for love."

Hope this helps,
cahty
