Rosie, my love, sweetheart, come sit by my side,
While my love to you I confide;
My own darling, of you I think all the time, love,
Hoping that you soon will be mine, my Little Rosie Deane.
Through day and night your image bright before me e'er is seen;
You are the idol of my heart, my little Rosie Deane.
Rosie Deane, you are my queen, the swellest girl I've seen:
You look so neat and smile so sweet, blue eyes and golden hair;
Rosie Deane, when you pass by, the boys all look and sigh:
They all tip their hats and wink their eyes at little Rosie Deane.
Jack, my own love, darling, I'll be your true love,
True as bright stars that shine above;
Hoping, watching, waiting that day to draw near, love.
When you will call me your own dear, your Little Rosie Deane:
I'll be your wife, your joy in life, no grief shall come between;
Yes, I will be your own, dear Jack, your little Rosie Deane.- Chorus.
