lyrics

MY LOVE IS LIKE A RED ROSE
Text: Robert Burns (1759-1796)

My love is like a red red rose
that's newly sprung in June:
my love is like the melodie
that's sweetly play'd in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
so deep in love am I:
and I will love thee still, my dear,
till a' the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
and the rocks melt wi' the sun:
and I will love thee still, my dear,
while the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my love,
tho' it were ten thousand mile.
