Love Among the Roses

By Edward N. Catlin and J.E. Baker


It was on one summer\u27s eveningin the merry month of JuneI beheld a damsel sitting \u27Mid flower\u27s sweet perfumeShe had a novel readingjust as I was passing byAnd as she turned another pageI saw the brightest eye A bewitching smile was on her faceAs charming as the posies I felt the smart of Cupid\u27s dart\u27Twas love among the roses. CHORUSNow I hate to tell but then I must,Within her heart I place my trustShe was sitting in the garden WHere the little butterlfy reposesAnd how we met,I\u27ll ne\u27er forgwet,\u27Twas Love among the Roses. Now I passed her house next eveningThe clock had just struck eightAnd I saw my future happinessShe was standing by the garden gateShe smile as I approached herAnd I begged her to excuse May I view those pretty flowers She murmured if you chooseI spoke about the violetsThen finally made proposesThro\u27 the garden we walked of happiness talked\u27Twas love among the roses. I confess I love Matilda,Matilda, that\u27s her name,And there is a charm about her Which I never can explain She dresses up to fashion To her style there is no endAnd of course she must look dashingFor she wears a Grecian Bend But she\u27s left her home and where she\u27s goneMost everyone supposes For as dear as life is my little wife\u27Twas love among the roses
