"Green Grow The Lilacs" lyrics

Green Grow The Lilacs

I used to have a sweetheart
But now I've got none
Since she's gone and left me
I care not for one
Since she's gone and left me
Contended I'll be
For she loves another one
Better than me

Green grow the lilacs
All sparkling with you
I'm lonely, my darling
Since parting with you
And by the next meeting
I hope to prove true
And change the green lilacs
To the red, white and blue

I passed my love's window
Both early and late
The look that she gave me
Made my heart ache
The look that she gave me
Was harm for to see
For she loves another one
Better than me

Green grow the lilacs
All sparkling with you
I'm lonely, my darling
Since parting with you
And by the next meeting
I hope to prove true
And change the green lilacs
To the red, white and blue

I wrote my love a letter
In rosy red lines
She sent me an answer
All twisted and twine
Saying, "Keep your love letters
And I will keep mine
Write to your sweetheart
And I'll write to mine"

Green grow the lilacs
All sparkling with you
I'm lonely, my darling
Since parting with you
And by the next meeting
I hope to prove true
And change the green lilacs
To the red, white and blue
