  • Rosie got religion
    Learned it on the farm
    Got to New York City, lined a (censored out) in her arm
    Got to New York City, Leroy led the way
    Made her somethin' special doin' business on Broadway

    One more time around Rosie
    Hey I'm tuggin' on your sleeve
    Won't you give me just
    One more time around Rosie
    The bus for Cincinnati gettin' ready to leave

    Out from Redfield South Dakota
    All her friends went to LA
    Guess her mama never told her she shoulda flown the other way
    'Cause Aunt Betty drive a Cobra up and down the Sunset Strip
    In the same old nasty business, but there's cowboys in her ______________.

    Yeah gimme
    One more time around Rosie
    Yeah, let my __________go, yeah
    Won't you give me just
    One more time around Rosie
    One more time please kindly take it slow

    One more time around Rosie
    Slap me right between the eyes
    Won't you give me just one more time around Rosie
    Lift me up and slap me with your thighs

    I hear Leroy livin' good now
    Reads the daily news, drives an eight track El Dorado
    Sportin' high Italian shoes
    He owes it all to Rosie
    Who's the shoes that coin them uptown hotel movies
    That made that little Brownie a star

    Yeah one more time around Rosie
    I'm the one who likes it upside down
    Won't you give me
    Just one more time around Rosie
    Your favorite boy from Muncie's back in town
