Rosie

He has little red feet
His stockin's in his shoes
Lipstick and rouge on his face
He has hair piled high
Has a red umbrella and carries his head in the sky

And I said, "Awe Rosie, don't you do that to the boys
Don't you come on so willin'
Don't you come on so strong
It can be so chillin'
When you act so willin'
And your warmth sets like the sun"

He has a little baby brother
A big fat mama
His sister asks for dimes on the street
He doesn't feel it's a cover
In fact he knows
For sure he can please

I said he's out there right now
Runnin' with the devil
Strutin' down the alley ways

With the nervous young hopeful at his heel
And he knows his satisfaction won't drive him away

And I said "Awe Rosie, don't you do that to the boys
Don't you come on so willin'
Don't you come on so strong
It can be so chillin'
When you act so willin'
And your warmth sets like the sun"

He's not lookin' for a friend
Not lookin' for a lover
There in the crowded bar
He has rings on his fingers
He's there to tease
Ya' know he only wants to take things too far
