MY LITTLE PERSIAN ROSE

MY LITTLE PERSIAN ROSE
Anatol Friedland
Edgar Allan Woolf
Jerome H. Remick & Co.
The Persian Garden
Starmer

I’ve seen flowers rare growing ev’rywhere
But I’ve never seen a rose like you.
From your haunt if I could tear you
Right upon my heart I’d wear you
And no one could ever share you,
I would be so true.
But roses are like love and they fade as fast
With all the storms that blow; love can’t ever last.
I’ll shield you from all harms
I’m mad about your charms,
I’ll hold you in my arms ’till all dangers passed.

CHORUS:
My little Persian Rose, Nobody knows
How I love you,
Oh pretty flower, Here in your bower,
With love I’ll shower You ev’ry hour
A garden just for two I’m sure will do
For me and you, Dearie,
I’m wild about you, can’t live without you,
My little Persian Rose.

When the fall draws near and the world looks drear
And the roses start to droop and fade,
I will wrap you up completely
In my loving arms so neatly,
That you’ll keep on blooming sweetly,
So don’t be afraid
When winter comes along with its frost and snows,
And an icy blanket then o’er the world it throws,
Little “Bride-Rose” have no fear,
For the spring will then be near,
To bring us rosebuds, dear little Persian Rose.
