    Lyrics

    I used to have a sweetheart but now I've got none
    Since she's gone and left me I care not for one
    Since she's gone and left me contended I'll be
    For she loves another one better than me

    Green grow the lilacs all sparkling with you
    I'm lonely my darling since partin' with you
    And by the next meeting I hope to prove true
    And change the green lilacs to the red white and blue

    I passed my love's window both early and late
    The look that she gave me made my heart ache
    The look that she gave me was harm for to see
    For she loves another one better than me

    I wrote my love a letter in rosy red lines
    She sent me an answer all twisted and twine
    Sayng keep your love letters and I will keep mine
    Write to your sweetheart and I'll write to mine

    Green grow the lilacs all sparkling with you
    I'm lonely my darling since partin' with you
    And by the next meeting I hope to prove true
    And change the green lilacs to the red white and blue
