Sister Rosa Jamendo Music track cover
  • well her name was Rosa/she sang Moon River
    she sang it like nobody else
    she stood by the microphone/but not too close
    and she filled up that stage/all by herself

    well outside they were towing cars/inside they were drinking
    and they had all brought their scars/gonna bleed their way to fame
    well she wore a cheap dress but she was/no damsel in distress
    she opened her mouth and i lost track of my name

    Sister Rosa/sing so sweet and high
    pull me into your Moon River/as you go sailing by

    well the devil sat next to me, he had a martini in each hand
    and he was buying but i just don't drink gin
    and he poured his words out like water in the desert
    said it's been way too long since i had a swim, and he said
    son i don't see no ring/let go of your good thing
    settle the bill with your wages of sin
    don't know whether to run or hide or take this ride
    i don't see no one by her side
    and when that Moon River came rollin' i
    jumped my body in

    Sister Rosa/sing so sweet and high
    pull me into your Moon River/as you go sailing by

    and she said/i don't know the words
    well that's alright/and she said
    i can't carry a tune/well don't get uptight
    and then she closed her eyes and we were all out of sight
    and she sang like a whole choir of angels all through the night
    whoa Rosa keep on singin'

    ooh yeah

    well it was last call for alcohol and all the model citizens had gone home
    i was left with the devil and man he was sauced
    so we took a walk around the block and i
    got my soul back outta hock and he
    left in a cloud of brimstone and exhaust and i
    don't know if i won or if i lost

    Sister Rosa/sing so sweet and high
    pull me into your Moon River/as you go sailing by
