I'm keeping this red red rose, Speaking of love and you. I'm telling this red red rose, "Bloom all the long years through!". No token but this token Has e'er spoken so truly. I'm keeping this red red rose, Speaking of love and you. No token but this token Has e'er spoken so truly. I'm keeping this red red rose, Speaking of love and you.
