• Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)

  • Spread out now Rosie doctor come cut 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 catsPapa'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 comeI ain't here on business
    I'm only here for funCHORUS:Rosalita jump a little lighter
    Senorita come sit by my fireI 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(CHORUS)
    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 roomI'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'(CHORUS)
