The Ballad of Rosie


Whatever you require Squire
If you can set my heart on file

O'Rosie, Rosie, my predicament is dire
How can I set your heart on fire

Admire, Squire my one desire
Desire sets my heart on fire

I desire, I desire, O'Rosie the fire
In my heart, it's you I desire

You Squire, are a liar
Your wicked way is what you desire

of the slow autumn at my window,
