Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
These roses, dear,
I’m sending you,
No fairer roses ever grow.
For deep in each heart there is concealed
This message of love to you revealed.

[Chorus]
Roses can bring us happiness,
Roses can bring us tears,
Roses can bring back memories
Memories of by-gone years,
Roses can bring forgiveness
For their charms are rare ‘tis true,
But could these roses speak, they’d tell you that they seek,
Just to say, dear, that I love you.

[Verse 2]
Like music, dear, flow’rs play their part.
They bring us joy and break our heart
Most beautiful flow’rs that ever grew
This message they bring, sweetheart, to you.

[Chorus]
