=======================================================


        This is the rose my true love gave to me
        She said that it wouldn't live eternally

        She gave it to me on the first night we met
        the thrill of the night I will never forget

        We kissed tenderly
        She said she loved me

        Once this rose meant happiness for me
        Now this rose means only misery

        She lied to me with everything she said
        now all I have a bitter taste of shame
        And like a rose is, pretty rose is dead

        This rose, this rose
        This rose, this rose
        Woh-oh-wow, this rose
