Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The rose is asleep, she nods her head
'Neath s bridal veil of dew,
And dreaming she blushes rosey red,
Caress'd by the moonlight so true;
Would you I'd pluck the rose?
Ah! no, Sad would the moon grow too,
I've learned, dear, to love them long ago,
The moonlight, the rose and you.

[Refrain]
Moonlight, roses,
Come love, the world reposes,
Why should we care tho' years belong,
You have my heart, I have your song;
Moonlight, roses,
Mem'ries the fond heart encloses.
Dear dreams, near dreams,
The moonlight, the rose and you.

[Verse 2]
A melody sweet the night wind sings,
A melody ever new,
The song that the silv'ry moonlight brings,
The rose that is kiss'd by the dew;
So would I sing to you for aye,
Sing while the heart beats true,
Just loving forever and a day,
The moonlight, the rose and you
