Red are Strawberries

Lyrics

(Folk song)

Red are strawberries, redder than red roses
Heigh ho tra-la-la, redder than red roses
Red are strawberries, redder than red roses
Green the leaves are falling

Deep in forests, deeper than the ocean
Heigh ho tra-la-la, deeper than the ocean
Deep in forests, deeper than the ocean
Green the leaves are falling

  1. I learned the song in 1964 in a teen church group
    Red are strawberries
    Redder than red roses
    Hey ho fa la la redder than red roses
    Red are strawberries
    Green the leaves are growing

  2. Hi. I was taught this song at school by Sister Therese Marcel in 1966. I also was taught that is was ‘green the leaves are growing’. I’ve never forgotten it!
