My love said to me, Down from the hills above. So, today I must go where the wide riv-ers flow "A hero you'll be, If you bring me the rose of love." From beginning to end, For the difficult task that she chose? Will the sun and the rain, Who will guide me, my friend, Show me the way to The Rose? From whose bosom I came, But I'll never, ever return, For my true love I yearn, When i find her, I'll sing, Till I find where that red lady grows. And the mission bells will ring the news that I've captured The Rose.
