"Rosalinda" as written by and Billy Joel....
Ah, Rosalinda,
Why do you cry?
Ah, Rosalinda,
Could this be why?

Now that there's nothing left to do,
Now that the children have all grown
And all you have is just a cat and a silent telephone.

Ah, Rosalinda,
Why do you weep?
Ah, Rosalinda,
And lonely sleep?

The neighbours turn away.
What will it take for them to learn
That all you want to do is love and to be loved in return?


Ah, Rosalinda,
We've gone away.
Ah, Rosalinda,
Still you stay.

Being what you've always been
And doing what you've always done.
How can we give you back the time you gave to us when we were young?

Ah, Rosalinda,
Turn off the light.
Ah, Rosalinda,
And say goodnight.

Now that the children have all grown.
Now that we've all have gone away.
Now that you're sitting at your home without a word to say.
