[Verse 1]
Rosie get wise,
Gaze in my eyes,
Can’t you see the love-light gleaming I want but you, you know that’s true
Day and night of you my love I’m dreaming
And when the fragrant roses are in bloom,
I’ll take you dearie on our honeymoon.

Meet me in Rose time Rosie,
Meet me in Rose time Rose True love is always cosy
Each little Rose bud knows
Don’t keep me waiting Rosie
Put on your wedding clothes
Meet me in Rose time
Dear sweet Propose time
Meet me in Rose time Rose.

[Verse 2]
Hearts that are true,
You’ll find but few,
We can live on love and kisses,
Think of the fun, when we are one I’ll be Mister and you will be Missis
For Rose-time only comes once a year
Now don’t forget to meet me Rosie Dear.
