Blushing Rosette #newsong #lyrics #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter


I just wrote this song for this week’s podcast at Lori Jean Finnila.

 Blushing Rosette


Verse

I was taught to perk up my back

Like the old ones behind me to get  respect

Turn my head, put my nose up in the air


Plumped skirts 

Flowered hats

Nail polished tights

Vaselined patent leather shoes

for Saturday night church

Close your eyes and ears

To the neighbors affairs


Chorus

I’m sitting waiting for magic

I’m told will come to me 

You blushing rosette


Verse

I may be french but I tell you 

There is nothing to bashful

Why I have to try so hard to masquerade

I don’t know


Bridge

The cold chewy fruit cake at holidays

Stale leftover salty snacks

In a smoke filled room

Leftover from the adults


Chorus

I’m sitting waiting for magic

I’m told will come to me 

You blushing rosette


Verse

The allure in all this

My sweet smiles turn to 

dirty pants with mud

A fishing pole with slime

Still 20 years later

I’m still rosy to this


Chorus

I’m in the magic

I was told will come to me 

You blushing rosette
