Rose, tinted eyes Color my sorrow A shade of 'why?
Bye bye black balloon See you real soon Wave bye bye Bye bye
Why were you so sad What have they done? Forget those mindless baboons They're off playing God
Copy cats in cheap suits All playing it safe While cannibals with their noose Consume a parade
Is it wonderful?
Kalopsia, kalopsia, kalopsia Kalopsia, kalopsia
Far, far from shore The land of nightmares Gone forever more
And I love you more Than I can control I don't even try Why would I?
Oh why the long face? You've got it all wrong Forget the rat in the race We'll choke chain them all
Fates favor the ones Who help themselves The rest feel the sting of the lash As they run, as they row the boat To hell

Country star Slim Whitman's version of the 1920s song "Rose Marie" spent 11 consecutive weeks at #1 in the UK in 1955, a record until 1991 when Bryan Adams’ "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" spent 16 weeks at the top.
