Lyrics: Malvina Reynolds.
Tune: Malvina Reynolds.
If you love me, if you love, love, love me,
Plant a rose for me.
And if you think you’ll love me for a long, long time,
Plant an apple tree.
The sun will shine; the wind will blow.
The rain will fall, and the tree will grow.
And whether you comes or whether you goes,
I’ll have an apple, and I’ll have a rose.
Lovely to bite and nice to my nose.
And every juicy nibble will be
A sweet reminder of the time you loved me
And planted a rose for me
And an apple tree.
