Both:
Love is pretty when love is new
Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew
Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine
When love is new it's magic

Daughter:
Mother, oh Mother, why can't you see
He's the only love for me
Why must thou be opposed to me
I'm asking for thy blessing

Mother:
Daughter, oh daughter, I know his kind
You think he's handsome, you think he's fine
He'll use your body and tangle your mind
Too late you'll learn this lesson

Both:
Love is pretty when love is new
Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew
Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine
When love is new it's magic

Mother:
When love grows cold it's tragic

Daughter:
Mother, oh mother, he's not that way
His touch just takes my breath away
You surely remember when you felt that way
When you and father first married

Mother:
Oh, yes, I do remember it well
What first was heaven soon turned to hell
He left with another the year you were born
I told you he's dead and buried

Both:
Love is pretty when love is new
Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew
Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine
When love is new it's magic

Daughter:
He'll love me true 'cause he told me so

Mother:
He'll break you heart when love grows old

Daugter:
I must go, Mother, I must go

Mother:
Then, daughter, why are you asking?

Daughter:
I love him so, I love him so

Mother:
Then I pray you're new love's lasting

Both:
Love is pretty when love is new
Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew
Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine
When love is new it's magic

Mother:
(Hums)
