I'm wishing for the moon, building castles in the air,
That's why I keep on saying:
Rosetta my Roseta,
In my heart dear, There's no one but you;
You told me, that you loved me,
Nev-er leave me for some-bod-y new;
You've made my whole live a dream,
I pray you'll make it come true;
Roseta, my Roseta,
Please say I'm just the one dear for you.
