Roses Are Red (My Love)
Words & Music by Bobby Vinton


A long, long time ago,
on graduation day,
you handed me your book,
I signed this way:

'Roses are red, my love,
violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love,
but not as sweet as you.'

We dated through high school,
and when the big day came,
I wrote into your book,
next to my name:

'Roses are red, my love,
violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love,
but not as sweet as you.'

Then I went far away
and you found someone new.
I read your letter, dear,
and I wrote back to you:

'Roses are red, my love,
violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love,
good luck, may God bless you.'

Is that your little boy?
He looks a lot like you.
Someday some girl will write
in his book, too:

'Roses are red, my love,
violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love,
but not as sweet as you.
Sugar is sweet, my love,
but not as sweet as you.'
