Long Firm Freddie Lyr Req: The songs Hyacinth Bucket sang Season2:7 (9) Lyr Add: ROSE OF ENGLAND (Ivor Novello) 17 Jan 13


The first song is from the 1907 comic opera Tom Jones:

Waltz Song.

For to-night

Let me dream out my dream of delight,

And purchase of sorrow a moment's respite.

I am dazed.

Like a lark that has gazed
On the sun, in his flight.

Let me sing !

For I waver and swing
Between madness? and gladness to-night.

The second is ROSE OF ENGLAND written by Ivor Novello in 1937 for his musical Crest of the Wave:

Grown in one land alone
Where proud winds have blown
There's not a flower born of the shower
Braver than England's own
Though gales of winter blow
Piercing hail and snow
Shining she stays bright as in days of yore
Old England's pride still blossoms
Fresh on England's shore

Rose of England thou shalt fade not here
Proud and bright from growing year to year
Red shall thy petals be as rich wine untold
Shared by thy warriors who served thee of old

Rose of England breathing England's air
Flower of chivalry beyond compare
While hand and heart endure to cherish thy prime
Thou shalt blossom to the end of time

Rose of England breathing England's air
Flower of liberty beyond compare
While hand and heart endure to cherish thy prime
Thou shalt blossom to the end of time
