As I sat alone with my dreams
A beautiful land I did see
And a vision so bright
Came to me through the night
With my dream girl I seemed to be
Oh her eyes are the stars of Heaven
That shine as a lamp so bright
Her lips are the rose’s petals
Which open their folds to the light
Her hair is the gold of sunset
As it fades in the Western sky
No flower that grows is like the Rose
She’s the flower of Pi Kappa Phi.
