Lida Rose
 
Lida Rose, I'm home again, Rose to get the sun back in the sky.
Lida Rose, I'm home again, Rose about a thousand kisses shy.
Ding, dong, ding! I can hear the chapel bell chime.
Ding, dong, ding! At the least suggestion I'll pop the question.
Lida Rose, I'm home again, Rose without a sweetheart to my name.
Lida Rose, now everyone knows that I am hoping you're the same
So here is my love song, not fancy or fine.
Lida Rose, oh won't you be mine!  Lida Rose, Oh Lida Rose.
 
Ending:
Lida Rose, Oh Lida Rose.
_______
 
Will I Ever Tell You?
 
Dream of now, dream of then.
Dream of a love song that might have been.
Do I love you? Oh, yes, I love you.
And I pray to tell you, But only when you dream a dream.
Sweet and low, sweet and low,
How sweet that mem'ry how long ago
Forever? Oh, yes forever.
Will I ever tell you my love? (Lida Rose, Oh Lida Rose)
 
Ending:
Lida Rose, Oh Lida Rose.
