lyrics

When I was in my prime
I flourished like a vine
then came upon a false young man
stole the heart of mine,
gone stole the heart of mine

The gard'ner standing by
three offers he made to me
the pink, the violet, the red, red rose
which I refused all three,
which I refused all three

The pink's no flower at all
for it fadeth way too soon
the violet is too pale a hue
I think I'll wait 'til June,
I think I'll wait 'til June

In June the red rose blooms
that's not the flower for me
and so I'll cut the red rose off
and plant a willow tree,
and plant a willow tree

And the willow tree shall weep
and the willow tree shall whine
I wish I was in the young man's arms
that stole the heart of mine,
that stole the heart of mine
