She bought a rose
And gave to you
Not for any special reason
Just because she wanted to

This rose is to show you
All the love her heart holds
And mother she will love you
Long after she has grown old

If she were a rich girl
You'd have a rose each day
To show you she's sorry
For the things she does and says

But she's a poor girl
And have just one rose to give
To show you she'll love you dearest mother
For as long as she shall live
