Little wild rose in the hedgerow growing,
Coral pink petals blushing and glowing,
While out on the air your perfume is blowing,
Little wild rose, so fair.

Fond little love, in a sweet sleep dreaming,
Dreaming of eyes with the love flame gleaming,
While out on the night a bright moon is beaming,
Dear little love, so true.

Little wild rose in the hedgerow dying,
Fond little love for a dead dream sighing,
How soon each fades with the hours that are flying,
Roses and dreams, so sweet.

Written and composed by Harold Jarvis & Arthur Lloyd - 1915
(Arthur Lloyd died in 1904, so I assume that the song was put to one of his old tunes.)
