Green grow the lilacs

In once had a sweetheart but now I have none
The way he has done me I care not for one
The way he has done me contented I'll be
For he loves another much better than me

    Green grow the lilacs all sparkling with dew
    I'm lonesome for my darling since parting from you
    The next time I meet him I hope to prove true
    And change the green lilacs to red, white and blue

I passed by his window both early and late
The look that he gave me it made my heart ache
The look that he gave me was harmful to see
For he loves another much better than me

 * Refrain

Wrote him a letter with rosey red lines
He sent me an answer all twisted entrines
Keep your love letters and I'll keep mine
Write to your sweetheart and I'll write to mine

 * Refrain
