Words by G. Carleton. Music by F. C. Andrews.

They're both twin roses so blushing and bright,
Twin stars that twinkle by day and by night;
One of them is my heart's fond delight,
That's Annie Rooney's sister!
She's the gem of her home, to my mind,
Tho' Annie is gentle, and loving and kind;
Go search all the world, not the equal you'll find
Of Annie Rooney's sister!

She has brown eyes, Annie blue,
She's my darling, sweet and true!
When fair Annie's wedding you see,
Annie Rooney's sister then will marry me!

She's just as winning and graceful and neat,
No one gets weary her charms to repeat;
All the neighbors will tell you how sweet
Is Annie Rooney's sister!
When the toils of the daylight are o'er,
Each evening light-hearted I meet her once more;
There's one I have promis'd to love And adore,
That's Annie Rooney's sister.-Chorus.

Soon in the dear little church we'll be wed,
Roses and lilies around will be spread;
Orange blossoms will crown the fair head
Of Annie Rooney's sister!
In a cottage beside a bright stream,
Where birds of the Summer will linger to dream;
The star of my home will forevermore beam,
That's Annie Rooney's sister!-Chorus.
