Rosie listens / to the morning news / Rosies listens, / puttin' on her walking shoes.
Rosie smiles / buying the New York Times / Rosie smiles / laying down some quarters and dimes.
Rosie dabs a paintbrush/ paints an iris white/ Rosie dabs a paintbrush/ Bathed in morning light.
Rosie ponders lunchtime/ 'Indian or Thai...'/ Rosie ponders lunchtime/ Rubs a tired eye.
Sun drops on her city / Turning golden red... / Sun drops on the city / Rosie buys some bread.
Wine around the table, friends in every room/ Flowers in the kitchen, irises in bloom.
Rosie has no children, though she mothers all/ When a heart is broken, Rosie gets the call.
Tugging on her covers, turning off the light/ Rosie lays her head down, bringing on the night.
Rosie rises, Rosie rises up./ Rosie rises, goes and fills her coffee cup.
