When you wore a tulip,
a sweet yellow tulip,
and I wore a big red rose,
When you caressed me,
'twas then heaven blessed me,
what a blessing, no one knows.

You made life cheerie,
when you called me dearie,
'twas down where the blue grass grows,
Your lips were sweeter than julep,
when you wore a tulip,
and I wore a big red rose.
