“Dear John” on going away to college

Morgan Welch and Katherine Quimbayo, Multimedia News

Roses are red and violets are blue

We are going to different colleges

And I’m pretty sure I don’t love you.

 

It wasn’t me –  it was you –

Say goodbye to the girl you knew.

Roses are red and violets are blue

 

We had a good time but we should start anew

No need to talk –  I’m not here to argue

And I’m pretty sure I don’t love you.

 

We were once the same but then we grew.

Let’s get real, I’m just better than you

Roses are red and violets are blue.

 

Here please, would you like a tissue?

Let’s not make this an emotional issue.

And I’m pretty sure I don’t love you.

 

I found someone new

He can do everything you couldn’t do

Roses are red and violets are blue

And I’m pretty sure I don’t love you.
