Rosealita
Original Artist: Bruce Springsteen

Spread out now Rosie doctor come cut loose her mama's reins 
You know playin' blind man's bluff is a little baby's game 
You pick up Little Dynamite I'm gonna pick up Little Gun 
And together we're gonna go out tonight and make that highway run 
You don't have to call me lieutenant Rosie and I don't want to be your son 
The only lover I'm ever gonna need's your soft sweet little girl's tongue and Rosie you're the one 
Dynamite's in the belfry playin' with the bats 
Little Gun's downtown in front of Woolworth's tryin' out his attitude on all the cats 
Papa's on the corner waitin' for the bus 
Mama she's home in the window waitin' up for us 
She'll be there in that chair when they wrestle her upstairs 'cause you know we ain't gonna come 
I ain't here on business 
I'm only here for fun 

Rosalita jump a little lighter 
Seņorita come sit by my fire 
I just want to be your lover ain't no liar 
Rosalita you're my stone desire 

Jack the Rabbit and Weak Knees Willie you know they're gonna be there 
Ah Sloppy Sue and Big Bones Billy they'll be comin' up for air 
We're gonna play some pool skip some school act real cool 
Stay out all night it's gonna feel all right 
Rosie come out tonight Rosie come out tonight 
Windows are for cheaters chimneys for the poor 
Closets are for hangers winners use the door 

Rosalita jump a little lighter 
Seņorita come sit by my fire 
I just want to be your lover ain't no liar 
Rosalita you're my stone desire 

Now I know your mama she don't like me 'cause I play in a rock and roll band 
And I know your daddy he don't dig me but he never did understand 
Papa lowered the boom he locked you in your room 
I'm comin' to lend a hand 
I'm comin' to liberate you confiscate you I want to be your man 
Someday we'll look back on this and it will all seem funny 
But now you're sad your mama's mad 
And your papa says he knows that I don't have any money 
Tell him this is his last chance to get his daughter in a fine romance 
Because a record company Rosie just gave me big bucks 

My tires were slashed and I almost crashed but the Lord had mercy 
My machine she's a dud out stuck in the mud somewhere in the swamps of Jersey 
Hold on tight stay up all night 'cause Rosie I'm comin' on strong 
By the time we meet the morning light I will hold you in my arms 
I know a pretty little place in Southern California down San Diego way 
There's a little cafe where they play guitars all night and day 
You can hear them in the back room strummin' 
So hold tight baby 'cause don't you know daddy's comin' 

Rosalita jump a little lighter 
Seņorita come sit by my fire 
I just want to be your lover ain't no liar 
Rosalita you're my stone desire
