Rose of Washington Square,
A flower so fair should blossom where the sunshines.
Rose, for nature did not mean,
That you should blush unseen, but be the queen of some fair garden.
Rose, I'll never depart,
But dwell in your heart, your love to care.
I'll bring the sunbeams from the Heavens to you, and give you kisses that sparkle with dew.
My Rose of Washington Square.
