Lyrics in English:

Rose, Rose I love you
with an aching heart
What is your future?
now we have to part
Standing on the jetty
as the steamer moves away
Flower of Malaya, I cannot stay
Make way, oh, make way
for my Eastern Rose
Men crowd in dozens
everywhere she goes
In her rickshaw on the street
or in a cabaret
"Please make way for Rose"
you can hear them say
All my life I shall remember
Oriental music and you in my arms
Perfumed flowers in your tresses
Lotus-scented breezes
and swaying palms
Rose, Rose I love you
with your almond eyes
Fragrant and slender '
neath tropical skies
I must cross the seas again
and never see you more
'way back to my home
on a distant shore
