I'd Like To Be A Rose

I'd Like To Be A Rose lyrics

I'd Like To Be A Rose

I’d like to be a rose
That hands on julia’s breast

Valentine
I’d like to be that oak tree,
That one that tow’rs above the rest

Proteus
I’d like to be a poem that she reads

Valentine
One she rips and throws away
I’d like to be the emperor
Any boy can be, they say.

Proteus
I’d rather rule her heart.

Valentine
I’d rather rule the world

Proteus
Oh! For a night with julia!

Valentine
Twenty days of wooing for one night of cooing

Proteus
Verona, imagine always living here

Valentine
Milan, imagine always living there!

Proteus
Verona, imagine never leaving this place

Valentine
Milan, if everyone knew my face.

Proteus
Verona, julia’s name on every breeze

Valentine
Milan, known by all the maitre d’s

There’s a million wonderful people in the world.
I want to know them all,
I want them all to bow down,
Here’s valentine,
Now up, now down.

Proteus
There is only one person in my world,
I want to know her

Valentine
You don’t even know her!

Proteus
I’m planning to know her.

Valentine
You haven’t even met her!

Proteus
Not yet.

Valentine
Oh proteus, you make me laugh

Proteus
I am sorry we don’t agree
We’ve been best friends since we were three

Valentine
Verona is to small for me
Milan, oh, that’s the place to be
Now, thank god, i’m finally free

Valentine & chorus
There’s a million wonderful people in the world
I want to know them all

Proteus, valentine, & chorus
We are brothers,
We are friends
Up until the day that eternity ends.
