Roode Roose sin so schee;

Liebscht du mich, so liewich dich!

Geb re en Boss en loss sie geh!

Roses red are oh so nice!
Roses red are oh so nice!
As you love me, so I’ll love you.
Happy are we who are free to woo!

Roses white are just as nice!

Kiss her once; then, let her go!
This is very quaint, you know!
