  • Hey Rosalyn, tell me where you've been
    Hey Rosalyn, tell me where you've been
    All the night and all the day
    Hide and seek's the game you play
    Treat me as sure as sin

    Oh Rosalyn, yeah Rosalyn

    Hey Rosalyn, you're the girl for me
    Hey Rosalyn, you're the girl for me
    When I'm holding you so tight
    It's so hard to say goodnight
    It's you that I love now can't you see?

    Do you really love me, do you love me true
    Do you really love me Rosalyn?
    Yeah gotta know, yeah gotta know
    Yeah gotta know Rosalyn

    Yeah gotta know, yeah gotta know
    Yeah gotta know Rosalyn
    Rosalyn
    Yeah Rosalyn, Rosalyn, Rosalyn, Rosalyn, ooh-yeah, ah Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Charpy Jon from Norwich UkLead singer Phil May had incredibly long hair even in 1964. He was still performing with Dick Taylor and The Pretty Things more or less up until his death in 2020 after a cycling accident in Norfolk UK aged 75. Rosalyn was the 1st 45rpm I ever bought. I loved it then and I love it now. I still have the disc, crackles and all.
