Intro:
We were ver - y hap - py, well at least I thought we were.  Can some - bod - y tell me what's got in - to her?
A house, a home, a fam - i - ly, a man that loves her so;  Who'd be - lieve she'd leave us to join the bur - lesque - show,
 
Part 1:
Oh,  Say has an - y - bod - y seen my Sweet Gyp - sy Rose?
Here's her pic - ture when she was my Sweet Ma - ry Jo,

(repeat part 1)

Oh,  Say has an - y bod - y seen my Sweet Gyp - sy Rose?
Here's her pic - ture when she was my Sweet Ma - ry Jo.
