Well I’m sitting on a windowsill, blowing my horn
Nobody’s up except the moon and me,
And a lazy old tomcat on a midnight spree
All that you left me was a melody.
Rosie, why do you evade? Rosie, how can I persuade? Rosie…

And the moon’s all up, full and big, apricot tips in an indigo sky,
And I’ve been loving you, Rosie, since the day I was born
And I’ll love you, Rosie ’til the day I die.
Rosie, why do you evade? Rosie, how can I persuade? Rosie…

Rosie, why do you evade? Rosie, how can I persuade? Rosie…

And I’m sitting on a windowsill, blowing my horn
Nobody’s up except the moon and me,
And a lazy old tomcat on a midnight spree
All that you left me was a melody.
Rosie, why do you evade? Rosie, how can I persuade? Rosie…
