ROSALITA (COME OUT TONIGHT)



Spread out now Rosie, doctor come cut loose her mama's reins
You know playin' blindman'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
Rosie, you're the one

Dynamite's in the belfry baby, 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 baby, I'm only here for fun
And Rosie, you're the one

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


Jack the Rabbit and Weak Knees Willie, you know they're gonna be there
Sloppy Sue and Big Bones Billie, 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 alright
So Rosie come out tonight, baby come out tonight
Windows are for cheaters, chimneys for the poor
Closets are for hangers, winners use the door
So use it Rosie, that's what it's there for

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

Now I know your mama she don't like me 'cause I play in a rock'n'roll band
And I know your daddy he don't dig me but he never did understand
Your 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 you papa says he knows that I don't have any money
Your papa says he know that I don't have any money
So your daddy 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 a big advance

And my tires were slashed and I almost crashed but the Lord had mercy
And my machine, she's a dud, I'm stuck in the mud somewhere in the swamps of Jersey
Well hold on tight, stay up all night 'cause Rosie I'm coming 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 café 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
Senorita, come sit by my fire
I just want to be your lover, ain't no lie
Rosalita, you're my stone desire
