Carlo and Rose on an Indian rug
Under the moon above
Two empty bottles and one to go
Down in the name of love
The stars were holes in a cosmic coat
That wrapped 'em up together
Carlo sang to his Irish Rose
A rhyme his tongue could master
Rockabye Rose and don’t you cry
I’ll sing you a Wino’s lullaby
It must be believed to be seen
So close your eyes and dream girl
Once upon a sea of rum
An idiot’s argosy-oh
He pitched a bow over amber waves
Merrily as can be-oh
And oh what a sight she was
Floatin' along the pier
The mission’s sail was a motel sheet
And her name was a French brassiere
Rockabye Rose and don’t you cry
I’ll sing you a Wino’s lullaby
It must be believed to be seen
So close your eyes and dream girl
The captain’s name was Morgan of course
80 proof and able
He called his crew from the forks on deck
I’ll drink you all under the table
So up from the hold they rolled
Barrels of four and twenty
Evening come, they’d tap the rum
And put to sea most drunkly
Rockabye Rose and don’t you cry
I’ll sing you a Wino’s lullaby
It must be believed to be seen
Oh Rose, are you still listening?
The first mate smoked a pack a day
So when the wind would stall
He’d heave his chest full of cigarettes
Galley the sails with menthol
The cats danced to a Spanish guitar
Gayly on their tails
But a broken string ruined everything
And they fled in fear for their entrails
Rockabye Rose and don’t you fret
The cats are all still dancin' yet
They must be retrieved to be cleaned
Although it’s just a fable
The cabin boy made an awful noise
And cursed his misadventure
He stowed to bed with the figurehead
And woke up raw with splinters
Aye high and up she rises
Early in the morning
Who are you and where’s my shoes?
The figurehead was calling
Rockabye Rose and don’t you know
That we met the same way long ago
You and I and a little wine
Rose do you remember?
When all at once a tempest blew
Their merry ship asunder
No one knows how the story goes
But we are left to wonder
Some say they bobbed away
On corks and bottles empty
And made their way to a lured bay
With mermaids for to marry
Rockabye Rose and don’t you cry
I’ll sing you a Wino’s lullaby
It must be believed to be seen
Oh Rose, I think you’re sleeping
