I knew a girl named Rosalie,
We used to hang out in the park,
We used to score the system grease,
From the fellas after dark.
We used to sail the streets at night,
Used to hang out late,
She had a bad time in the barrack,
Caught a bullet in the teeth.

Rosalie come go,
Rosalie come stay,
Rosalie come go,
I never liked you anyway.

I knew a girl named Mary Ann,
She had a camera and a cane,
She used to walk me to the station,
When I was dying in the rain.

She was a friend of Rosalie's,
They had a nurse they liked to share,
Well Mary Ann was doing the doctor,
You know his covers went bare.

Rosalie come go,
Rosalie come stay,
Rosalie come go,
I never liked you anyway.

Rosalie come go,
Rosalie come stay,
Rosalie come go,
I never liked you anyway.

I knew a boy named Billy Haynes,
He had it all figured out,
He had a trail of dust and branches marked,
To get him back down south.

But the blue lights had his number,
And he was sweating hard from the heat,
He's got a pack of bullets in his satchel
Down on forty second street.

Rosalie come go,
Rosalie come stay,
Rosalie come go,
I never liked you anyway.

Rosalie come go,
Rosalie come stay,
Rosalie come go,
I never liked you anyway
