"Rose Come Home" as written by James Allyn Helmer and Daryl F Hall....
You beat around the bush
And I beat around the bush
We all beat around the bush
And I'm just here to tell you tonight

Help, I am imprisoned
Inside an old sombrero
The big hand is on the nine
Forty Chinese oranges
Are drinking Dr. Pepper
Rosie, won't you be mine

I'm just a gypsy
Laying sheets of lightning
Across the Tijuana stone
A plaster
Sits in the shadow
Looks an awful lot like Rose

Mexicali Rose come home
Turn your pretty back to the sunset
Listen to the words of the one you love
Rosie, won't you please come home
Mexicali Rose come home
Turn your pretty back to the sunset
Listen to the words of the one you love
Rosie, won't you hurry on home

Sweet adobe honey
I've run out of money
My pony just up and died
Saying enchiladas
Singing Old Granada
Rosie, won't you be mine

I'm Poncho Villa
Comin' home to see ya
Baby, on your radio
Voiced around his father
Playing in a Chrysler
Looks an awful lot like Rose

Mexicali Rose come home
Turn your pretty back to the sunset
Listen to the words of the one you love
Rosie, won't you hurry on home
Mexicali Rose come home
Me and your sister, Annabelle
Sitting on the front porch
Waiting for you
Rosie, won't you please come home

Rosie, won't you hurry
Won't you hurry on home

Mexicali Rose come home
Turn your pretty back to the sunset
Listen to the words of the one you love
Rosie, won't you please come home
Mexicali Rose come home
Turn your pretty back to the sunset
Listen to the words of the one you love
Rosie, won't you hurry on home
