There's a yellow rose in Texas, that I am going to see,
No other darky [sic] knows her, no darky only me
She cryed [sic] so when I left her it like to broke my heart,
And if I ever find her, we nevermore will part.
She's the sweetest rose of color this darky ever knew,
Her eyes are bright as diamonds,they sparkle like the dew;
You may talk about your Dearest May, and sing of Rosa Lee,
But the Yellow Rose of Texas beats the belles of Tennessee.
When the Rio Grande is flowing, the starry skies are bright,
She walks along the river in the quite [sic] summer night:
She thinks if I remember, when we parted long ago,
I promised to come back again, and not to leave her so. [Chorus]
Oh now I'm going to find her, for my heart is full of woe,
And we'll sing the songs togeather [sic], that we sung so long ago
We'll play the bango gaily, and we'll sing the songs of yore,
And the Yellow Rose of Texas shall be mine forevermore. [Chorus]

There's a sad sound that's clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say, "Cuckoo" (Cuckoo, cuckoo)
Regretfully they tell us but firmly they compel us
To say goodbye to you
So long, farewell, au Wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu
So long, farewell, au revoir, au wiedersehen
I'd like to stay and taste my first champagne
So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye, goodbye
I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone to bed and so must I
So long, farewell, au wiedersehen, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Innocent white, intense incarnadine,
Precious without question.
Ensured to wilt.
Ensured to fall.
Ensured to die.
From a flower on high,
A petal falls while
In an awkward dance
Of new beauty
Incapable of analyses but
Stemming seemingly from
The petal being held afloat
Only by a thin thread of air
Lachesis measured short.
Time forever passing,
Tears forever multiplying,
Petal descending still.
All nature fleeting,
And yet another
Than the last
The flower is left
An ugly shell
Of its former glory.
The more the beautiful,
The more the damned.
Happy Birthday, Bill. You didn't make it.
