Lyrics composed by
John Henderson on the 11th of February, 2013,
to Dick Kessner's playing of the chorus of Gus Edwards' 1904
for the song, 'I'll
Be With You When The Roses Bloom Again' ......
or, Kessner's version.... 'I'll Be With You When The Roses Bloom
"Weel we dinced ilk waltz an' jig an' reel yestreen,
Fan the meen an' spirklin' starns oan us did sheen;
Fyle the teens thit tapp'd oor herts, an' the brobs frae Cupid's
Seen brocht luve tae raise oor myns an' een.
We cud waak this e'en an' sik tae be oor lane,
Han' in han' alang the san' gif ye are fain,
An' syne chat, an' jeest an' sang; e'en a kiss wudna ging wrang
Fan nae fowks bit us wud ken fit we'd been daen!"
"Ay we dinced fair weel an' ye wur guid tae me,
Fyle the teens, meen an' the starns wur canty tee;
A wee waak doon by the sea, airm in airm wud pleesint be,
Bit nae kissin' yit gif ye wull gree?"
"Fit ye weesh braw Jill is guid eneuch fur me,
An' I'll lern nae ower histy I shud be;
Bit gif ye wull be ma freen, 'tho a verra speeshal freen,
We syne aye shud as pals-bide ...... maist happily."
