Second hand shoes, second hand clothes
They all call her "Second hand Rose"
They all think they're pretty smart
But Rose don't have a second hand heart.
I love a little girl who lives across the way
I go to see her nearly every day
But when I get the money I'll take her away
And they can't gather around her and say:
They tease her about her clothes and things
It's hard to believe some folks could be so mean
But when I get the money I'll buy her the best
I'll take a Rose, you can have all the rest.
