about

This mean, Dylanesque number is eight or nine years old, but was transformed when sung by Rosie.

lyrics

Hey girl, don’t you come ‘round here no more
I been lyin’ to keep up all my promises
Hey girl, quit your cryin’, actin’ sore
I been tryin’ to keep you off of the premises

But now I’m blue
So blue
For every thing I’ll never do or do for you
You got to go but you keep lookin’
Oh can’t you see that you got took in
It’s such a shame
It’s such a shame
And my momma said now

Hey girl, don’t you come 'round here no more
I been lyin’ to keep up all appearances
Hey girl, quit your cryin’, actin’ sore
I been tryin’ to tabulate my experiences

And I know you must think me so unkind
And I know there is nothing I can do now to change your mind
I was cruel
To a fool
And I knew
I knew
But my momma said now

Hey girl
I been lyin’ to give up all apology
Hey girl
I been tryin’ to live up to your mythology

I was cruel
To a fool
And I knew
I knew
But my momma said now

Hey girl
Hey girl
