Sweet Roseanna


Sweet Roseanna, sweet, sweet Roseanna,

When she wheels into a room,

Men fall at her feet and swoon,

She has a smile that warms the coldest heart,

Her long dark curls are as wild as can be,

Sweet Roseanna, when she steps into the water

Is when she's the most free,

Like a mermaid she swims and plays,

But when she dances in the water

That people would pay to see,

every movement so sensual and free,

her hips move in the perfect time

to music she hears in the depths of her soul,

a tango one moment, and

a cha-cha-cha the next,

I wonder when this nymph will fly away,

Yes she’s bound to fly away one day,
