Verse:
I want to take you to a lit - tle room,  A lit - tle room where all the ros - es bloom.
I want to lead you in - to Na - ture's Hall,  Where ev - 'ry year the ros - es give a ball.
They have an Or - ches - tra up in the trees,  For their mu - si - cians are the birds and bees,
And they will sing us a song, As we are stroll - ing a - long.
 
Chorus:
In sun - ny Rose - land, where sum -mer breez - es are play - ing,
Where the hon - ey bees are "A - May - ing",
There all the ros - es are sway - ing,
Dan - cing while the mead - ow brook flows.
The moon when shin - ing, is more than ev - er de - sign - ing,
For 'tis ev - er then I am pin - ing
Pin - ing to be sweet - ly re - clin - ing,
Some where in Rose - land,  Be - side a beau - ti - ful rose.
