"The Fable of the Rose" is a song Frank Sinatra recorded under Columbia Records.

This song was released as a single alongside the song "This is the Beginning of the End" as its B-side. Neither of these songs charted, however.[2]

Lyrics Edit

Starry night, this is the fable of the rose,
The rose I gave my love,
So young and tender, so in bloom.
Filled with a faint perfume,
Is lying crushed and faded in a room.

Starry night, this is the fable of the rose,
The rose I gave my love,
Beyond all dreams of her caress,
I may as well confess,
She only loved me slightly nonetheless

Yet her smile so strangely taunts me
All the thrill of it haunts me,
And so it goes, the fable of the rose.
