Mama pyjama rolled outta bed, and go to the police station
When my papa found out, he began to shout
And started the investigation
It was against the law, it was against the law
What your mama saw, it was against the law

Mama looks down and spits on the ground
Every time my name gets mentioned
And my papa said oy, if I ever get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of Detenton
Said I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm goin
Said I'm on my way, I'm takin my time, but I don't know where

Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona
Seein me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein me and Julio down by the schoolyard

Well in a couple of days they're gonna take me away
When the press let the story leak
Now when the radical breach comes to get me released
We all got on the cover of Newsweek
Said I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm goin
Said I'm on my way, I'm takin my time, but I don't know where

Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard

Said I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm goin'
Said I'm on my way, I'm takin' my time, but I don't know where

Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
