A red,red rose

(by Robert Burns)

O, my love is like a red, red rose,

That’s newly sprung in June.

O, my love is like the melody,

That’s sweetly played in tune.



As fair art thou, my bonny lass,

So deep in love am I,

And I will love thee still, my dear,

Till all the seas go dry.



Till all the seas go dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt with the sun!

And I will love thee still, my dear,

While the sands of life shall run.



And fare thee well, my only love,

And fare thee well a while!

And I will come again, my love,

Though it were ten thousand mile!

I Just Called

No New Year's Day to celebrate,

No chocolate girls or candy hearts to give away,

No birds of spring, no song to sing,

In fact it's just another ordinary day.

No April rain, no flowers bloom,

No wedding Saturday within the month of June,

But what it is, is something true

Made up of these three words that I must say to you



I just called to say I love you

I just called to say how much I care,

I just called to say I love you

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart


No Summer's time, no warm July,

No harvest moon to light one tender August night,

No autumn breeze, no falling leaves,

Not even time for birds to fly to southern skies,

No Libra sun, no Halloween,

No giving things toward the Christmas joy you bring.

But what it is, though, oh, so new,

To fill your heart like no three words that I ever knew.





  1. Use the second page with this song without some words.

To fill your … like no three … that I ever knew.



  1. Read these well-known lines and say with which of them you agree and why.

Love is life and if you miss love, you miss life.

Love isn’t love until you give it a way.

Love is the strongest of all passion: it takes hold of head, heart and body at the same time.

Life is the flower which love is the honey.

Real love always makes people better.
