"Sally, Go 'Round The Roses" as written by and L. Stevens Z. Zanders....
Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
Roses they can't hurt you (roses they can't hurt you)
Roses they can't hurt you (no, the roses they can't hurt you)

Sally don't you go, don't you go downtown
Sally don't you go, don't you go downtown
Saddest thing in the whole wide world
Is to see your baby with another girl

(Sally go 'round) oh Sally don't you go ('round and 'round)
Don't you go downtown (Sally go 'round)
No, don't you go downtown ('round and 'round)
Yes, because the saddest thing in the whole wide world
Is to see your baby with another girl

Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
They won't tell your secret (they won't tell your secret)
They won't tell your secret (no, the roses won't tell your secret)

Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
Sally baby cry, let your hair hang down
Sit and cry where the roses grow
You can sit and cry, not a soul will know

(Sally go 'round) oh Sally baby cry ('round and 'round)
Let your hair hang down (Sally go 'round)
Yes, let your hair hang down, yeah ('round and 'round)
Because the saddest thing in the whole wide world
Is to see your baby with another girl

Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the pretty roses)
Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)
Sally go 'round the roses (Sally go 'round the roses)

    Song MeaningWhen this song was released, a lesbian relationship was VERY taboo. That's what this song is about, the sadness and secrecy of females in love...with one partner drifting away.
