Verse 1

Like a rose growing wild,

In Life’s garden fair,

Shabby clothes, still a rose,

You are sweet and rare.

 

Chorus

Raggedy Rose,

my only Raggedy Rose,

I’m lonely

For your dear smile,

so sweet and true.

Diamonds and pearls may flash on

hundreds of girls of fashion,

But I am sure

I want just you, my sweetheart.

Shabbily dressed,

you’re neater than all the rest,

and sweeter,

Nobody else for me

will do;

Even in rags and tatters,

It’s only love that matters,

Raggedy Rose,

I love just you.

 

Verse 2

Little rose, heart o’ gold,

Beats within your breast,

There it grows, ragged rose,

‘Spite of how you’re dressed.

 

Chorus
