Perry Como - "Love Is A Christmas Rose" lyrics

( doo, doo, doo doo . . . )

Friendship is a holly tree,
That brightens as it grows,
Friendship is a holly tree,
But love is a Christmas rose!

Romance is the mistletoe,
That from the ceiling glows,
Romance is the mistletoe,
But love is a Christmas rose!

With this rose I give you,
On this Christmas day,
Can't you see my darling,
What my heart has tried so hard to say'

Friendship is a holly tree ( Friendship is a holly tree )
That brightens as it grows ( That brightens as it grows )
Friendship is a holly tree ( Friendship is a holly tree )
But love is a Christmas rose! ( But love is a Christmas rose! )

Romance is the mistletoe ( Romance is the mistletoe )
That from the ceiling glows ( That from the ceiling glows )
Romance is the mistletoe ( Romance is the mistletoe )
But love is a Christmas rose! ( But love is a Christmas rose! )

Love is a Christmas rose! ( Friendship is a holly tree )
Love is a Christmas rose! ( Romance is the mistletoe )
Love is a Christmas rose . . . fade
