WHERE ARE ALL THE ROSES
The sweet perfume of Spring
The promise of tomorrows
Each passing day would bring

And WHERE ARE ALL THE ROSES
I gave you through the years
At all those celebrations
Now marked with silent tears

How many times
I’d gaze into your young and laughing eyes
Those eyes which spoke of
Time that never ends and light that never dies

WHERE ARE ALL THE ROSES
They’re gathered in a spray
And placed here in your mem’ry
Now that you have gone away.

You dared to dream then made your dreams come true
My dreams came true the day I married you

WHERE ARE ALL THE ROSES
Each year a fresh bouquet
I bring to say your mem’ry
Lives in me every day
