Lyric

Oh darling, will our love be like an evergreen tree
Stay ever green and young as the seasons go
Your kisses could make love grow like an evergreen tree
Bloom in the summer’s sun and the winter’s snow

On every branch will blossom
Dreams for me and you
Our tree of love will stay ever green
If our hearts stay ever true

Oh darling, I love you so, don’t you know that I’ll be
True ’til the leaves turn blue on the evergreen tree

On every branch will blossom
Dreams for me and you
Our tree of love will stay ever green
If our hearts stay ever true

Oh darling, I love you so, don’t you know that I’ll be
True ’til the leaves turn blue on the evergreen tree
On the evergreen tree
On the evergreen tree
