1 There’s a Rose that is blooming for you, friend,
There’s a Rose that is blooming for me;
Its perfume is pervading the world, friend,
Its perfume is for you and for me.

Refrain:
There’s a Rose, a lovely Rose,
And its beauty all the world shall see;
There’s a Rose, a lovely Rose,
Its perfume is for you and for me.

2 Long ago in the valley so fair, friend,
Far away by the beautiful sea,
This pure Rose in its beauty first bloomed, friend,
And it blooms still for you and for me. [Refrain]

3 All in vain did they crush this fair flow’r, friend,
All in vain did they shatter the tree,
For its roots, deeply bedded, sprang forth, friend,
And it blooms still for you and for me. [Refrain]
