Rosie never was one for turning heads
She was just always kinda there
She had a few nice features more or less
No red ribbons in her hair

Since that Jessie's been coming to the diner
Folks are saying that she's never looked finer
She's got a different air

She's taken a shine to him
Becoming the woman that she's never been
And all of guys are wishin' they hadn't been so blind
She's taken a shine to life
Now's there a sparkle in her eye
They all missed a gem - a diamond within
She's taken a shine

Rosie hardly messed a bit of work
Never took vacation days
Home, or the diner, it was all the same to her
She didn't know any other way

But each afternoon now she starts to come alive
'Cause Jessie's there each day to pick her up at five
You ought to hear them say

She's taken a shine to him
Becoming the woman that she's never been
And all of guys are wishin' they hadn't been so blind
She's taken a shine to life
Now's there a sparkle in her eye
They all missed a gem - a diamond within
She's taken a shine

Oh, what a little love can do
Now that she's found herself
She's stromger than she ever knew

She's taken a shine to him
Becoming the woman that she's never been
And all of guys are wishin' they hadn't been so blind
She's taken a shine to life
Now's there a sparkle in her eye
They all missed a gem - a diamond within
She's taken a shine
