*Whistle melody*

Bum bum bum bum
We're painting the roses red,
We're painting the roses red!
We dare not stop or waste a drop,
So let the paint be spread!
We're painting the roses red,
We're painting the roses red!

We're full of dread,
And many a tear we shed...

[Ace:]  Because we know...

[Duce:]  They'll cease to grow...

[Card 3:]  In fact they'll soon be dead!

[All:]  
And yet we go ahead...
Painting the roses red!

We're painting the roses red,
We're painting the roses red!

[Alice:]
Oh, pardon me,
But mister three,
Why must you paint them red?

[Card 3:]

(spoken)  Well, the fact is, miss,
We planted the white roses by mistake!  
And...

[All:]
The queen,
She likes them red.
She'd see they're not all red,
She'd raise her voice
And each of us would quickly lose his head!

Since this is the thought we dread...
We're painting the roses red!

[Alice:]
(Spoken)  Oh, dear, then let me help you!

We're painting the roses red...

[All with Alice:]
We're painting the roses red!

[All:]
Don't tell the queen that's what you've seen
Or tell her what we've said!
We're painting the roses red...

[Alice:]
Yes, painting the roses red!

[Ace:]  Not pink...

[Duce:]  Not green...

[Alice:]  Not aquamarine!

[All:]  
We're painting the roses red!
