Their Complete Victor Recordings - 1932-1933 (CD) - Give Me Roses While I Live lyrics

(R.H. Cornelius)
-Solo-
Wonderful things of folks are said
When they have passed away
Roses adorn their narrow bed
Over the sleeping clay

Chorus:
Give me the roses while I live
Trying to cheer me on
Useless are flowers that you give
After the soul has gone
-Solo-
Let us not wait to do good deeds
Till they have passed away
Now is the time to sow good seeds
While here on earth we stay
Chorus: -Solo-
Kind words are useless when folks lie
Cold in a narrow bed
Don't wait till death to speak kind words
Now should the words be said
Chorus: -Solo-
Give me the roses while I live Don’t wait until I die To spread the roses o’er my grave To see as you pass it by
Chorus:
