lyrics

Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love. 

With her hands she would work. With her heart she would pray. 
With her lips she would laugh. With her arms greet the day.
With her song she would sing. With her feet she would dance. 
With her smile she would soothe. With her eyes make romance.

Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love. 

The clouds will come in and the rain will fall. 
The sun will rise up and dry it all. 
The wind will come down and blow it all away. 
The roses will bloom on another day. 

Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love. 

Now I am gone so far from home. Recuérdeme mi corazón.
Dé las gracias por el día. I give thanks for the day.
Mariposa de la felicidad, don’t fly away.

Viva la rosa. That's what she would say. 
I sing for the roses. I live for the day. 
Viva la rosa. I pray for the dove. 
Today is a gift. Viva la rosa, My Love.
