Mama always wanted roses,
But I was just a kid when Papa left;
Now I know what a rose means,
If Mama were here I'd tell her this:

Here's a rose for curin' my cold,
Here's a rose for mendin' my clothes;
Here's a rose for the heartaches
I've put you through,
Here's a rose to say I love you.

Mama, where did all the years go?
How you raised ten kids I'll never know;
You're all dressed up to go away.

Spoken:
And here's the last rose, Mama,
I thought I'd bring it anyway.

Here's a rose for curin' my cold,
Here's a rose for mendin' my clothes;
Here's a rose for the heartaches
I've put you through,
Here's a rose to say I love you.

Here's a rose for curin' my cold,
Here's a rose for mendin' my clothes;
Here's a rose for the heartaches
I've put you through,
Here's a rose to say I love you.

Mama, I love you.
