"Rose Robert" as written by and Kevin Barnes....
Rose Robert I'd like to welcome you to our affair.
We'll write a lovely little story just you
And I as time goes by me and my Rose Robert.

People stare when we walk arm in arm along the thoroughfare.
The gentlemen don't know whether to bow their heads
Or tip their hats instead at me and Rose Robert.

All of our days move so slow since we stopped
And let the world go on without us.
We haven't get a care me and Rose Robert.

You're delightful mon chere it's so lovely
When we wear each others clothes.
You draw on your mustache while I powder my nose.
Josephine and Fanny don't compare to my Rose Robert.

Rose Robert together we make quite a remarkable pair.
It doesn't seem strange somehow
That we never speak we just gurgle and squeak me and my Rose Robert.

Few will dare to offer any pleasantries or see how we fare.
I guess they assume that we have lost our wits
But we're just a couple of misfits me and my Rose Robert.

    General CommentOne of my favorites off of Coquelicot. I'm not sure how it ties into the story that the album loosely follows. I have an idea, but I'm not positive...

    Anyway. Very catchy little song.

    General CommentI love this idea of a totally weird but totally perfect for each other couple. The guy dressing up as a turn of the century girl and the girl dressing up as a turn of the century guy and them just going out for strolls... and just gurgling and squeeking.
