Copyright, 1887, by Frederick Blume.

He gave me a pretty ted rose
While rambling to-night o'er the lea;
And said, as he kissed me good-bye,
"Wear this in your breast, love, for me."
Tis fading and falling apart,
But close to my heart it will cling;
While lonely I sigh for my darling's bright eye,
Of my pretty red rose I will sing.

My pretty red rose, my pretty red rose,
'Tis a sweet little token, my pretty red rose,
While lonely I sigh for my darling's bright eye,
I'll sing of my pretty red rose.

'Tis a dear little mem'ry of love.
How sad it soon must decay;
But fondly I'll treasure its leaves,
Tho' their beauty may vanish away.
Sweet moments of joy it recalls,
And lulls ev'ry sigh to repose;
Though now we're apart, still my true lover's heart
Seems to dwell in my pretty red rose.-Chorus.
