: Hello all,
: I'm trying to translate the traditioanl "Rose Rose Rose Rose..." but I'm facing a problem. The version I have goes like this:
: "Rose Rose Rose Rose
: Shall I ever see thee wed
: Aye marry then thou wilt
: All thou but stay
: When thou art dead"
: As you can see, it has no punctuation marks, and I found numerous other versions on the net, and I don't know where to start.
: Does anybody know an "original" version, is the version that I have correct? There's a good chance it has mistakes in it, since it's taken from an audio cassette, and not from a written source.
: Thanks alot,
: Ruthi.

Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose
Will I ever see thee wed?
I will marry at thy will
Sire, at thy will.

Ding, dong, ding, dong
Wedding bells on a September morn.
Carve your name on a moss covered stone;
On a moss covered stone.

America, America
Shall I tell you how I feel?
You have given me my freedom
And I love you so.
