[Verse 1]
Though a sunlit garden with its roses fair
Once I sought the flower I would have you wear,
But no single blossom
Could my love impart,
So to, tell the story,
That is in my heart.

[Refrain]
A garland of old fashioned roses
Sweetheart I bring to you Roses
I gathered in Loveland
Dreaming sweet dreams of you
Each rose dear a message is breathing
Tender and fond and true;
This garland of old fashioned roses,
Sweetheart I bring to you.

[Verse 2]
‘Twas among the Roses Dear,
I first met you
So I bring these flowers
Sweetheart your love to woo
Let this fragrant garland crown our love today,
Sweet is love’s own story,
That the blossoms say.

[Refrain]
