Four ladies chain, you turn the girl and then Roll away, circle to the left go around in time Four ladies roll away, circle to the left and then Go left allemande and weave the ring Life was so cheery when you called me dearie Meet your girl and promenade Your lips were sweeter than julip, when you wore a tulip And I wore a big, red rose

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 cheery,
When you called me dearie,
'Twas down where the blue grass grows,
Your lips were sweeter than julep,
When you wore that tulip,
And I wore a big red rose.
