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.
Ev'ry star above knows the one I love,
Sweet Sue, just you.
And the moon up high knows the reason why,
Sweet Sue, it's you.
No one else it seems ever shares my dreams
And without you dear, I don't know what I'll do.
In this heart of mine you live all the time,
Sweet Sue, just you
