VP_001384 Verse 1Sweetheart with the smiling eyes, Sweetheart with the cheek so fair, One thing and only one thing in this wide world can compare. Sweet heart with you, Come closer do, See what I have sought for, See what I have brought for, See what I have brought for you. Chorus 1For you a rose, A rose of beauty rare, A red, red rose, for you to wear, And as I kiss each crimson petal so, I bid it go, my love for you to show, And tho' some day, you may toss it away. And tho' some day, with another you stray; Whene'er you go, where red red roses grow, Remember me, Remember me.
