If you listen I'll sing you a sweet little song Of a flower that's now drooping its head Yet dearer to me, yes, than all of its mates Though each holds aloft its proud head 'Twas given to me by a girl that I know Since we've met, faith, I've known no repose She is dearer by far than the world's brightest star And I call her my wild Irish Rose My wild Irish Rose, the sweetest flower that grows You may search everywhere, but none can compare With my wild Irish Rose My wild Irish Rose, the sweetest flower that grows And some day for my sake, she may let me take The bloom from my wild Irish Rose They may sing of their roses, which by other names Would smell just as sweetly, they say But I know that my Rose would never consent To have that sweet name taken away Her glances are shy when e'er I pass by The bower where my true love grows And my one wish has been that some day I may win The heart of my wild Irish Rose My wild Irish Rose, the sweetest flower that grows You may search everywhere, but none can compare With my wild Irish Rose My wild Irish Rose, the dearest flower that grows And some day for my sake, she may let me take The bloom from my wild Irish Rose (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2017)
