VP_011075 Verse 1Dearie sit beside me while the sun sets low As it casts its rays upon the driven snow And let me tell you of a flower that never dies Blooming in December just the same as May Shedding full its fragrance evry night and day It's wonderful Yes a beautiful story Let me tell it to you Chorus 1All the little springtime flow'rs have wilted Faded are the pretty blooms of May And old King Winter with his icy breath has driven Each petal so fragrant away But there is a flower ever blooming Springtime, Summer and the whole year through With its fragrance in my heart to stay for ever It's the flower of my heart dear, just you. Verse 2As the years go passing by and we grow old Let us turn back to the days when I was bold And let me tell the same sweet story of long ago Nothing, dear, has chilled the everlasting flow'r It has never ceased its fragrance to this hour This wonderful Yes this beautiful story I will tell it again
