When Love Is New (ft. Dolly Parton) lyrics

Both:

Love is pretty when love is new

Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew

Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine

When love is new it's magic



Daughter:

Mother, oh Mother, why can't you see

He's the only love for me

Why must thou be opposed to me

I'm asking for thy blessing



Mother:

Daughter, oh daughter, I know his kind

You think he's handsome, you think he's fine

He'll use your body and tangle your mind

Too late you'll learn this lesson



Both:

Love is pretty when love is new

Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew

Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine

When love is new it's magic



Mother:

When love grows cold it's tragic



Daughter:

Mother, oh mother, he's not that way

His touch just takes my breath away

You surely remember when you felt that way

When you and father first married



Mother:

Oh, yes, I do remember it well

What first was heaven soon turned to hell

He left with another the year you were born

I told you he's dead and buried



Both:

Love is pretty when love is new

Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew

Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine

When love is new it's magic



Daughter:

He'll love me true 'cause he told me so



Mother:

He'll break you heart when love grows old



Daugter:

I must go, Mother, I must go



Mother:

Then, daughter, why are you asking?



Daughter:

I love him so, I love him so



Mother:

Then I pray you're new love's lasting



Both:

Love is pretty when love is new

Like a blushing rose in a dazzling dew

Intoxicating like cherry sweet wine

When love is new it's magic



Mother:

(Hums)
