Rose of Wash - ing - ton Square,
A flow - er so fair should blos - som where the sun - shines.
Rose, for na - ture did not mean,
That you should blush un - seen, but be the queen of some fair gar - den.
Rose, I'll nev - er de - part,
But dwell in your heart, your love to care.
I'll bring the sun - beams from the Hea - vens to you, and give you kiss - es that spar - kle with dew.
My Rose of Washington Square.
