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

Blushing Rosette


Verse

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

for Saturday night        church

Close your eyes and ears

To the neighbors affairs


Chorus

You’re in the magic

Rosette

I was told will come to me 

You being very impatient

Won’t help 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

You’re in the magic

Rosette

I was told will come to me 

You being very impatient

Won’t help 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

You’re in the magic

Rosette

I was told will come to me 

You very impatient girl

You blushing rosette


blushing rosette


repeat


you blushing rosette


blushing rosette


repeat x3
