You’d Better Watch Out For The Girls From St. Rose

I once knew a girl

Back when I was a teen

Blue eyes like the ocean

In them, I would dream

About getting together

And having some fun

She winked and she told me

I wasn’t the one

 

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

They’re full of surprises

And they’ll keep you on your toes

Take it from someone

Just trust me I know

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

 

I once knew a lady

When I was a lad

She said that she’d date me

I was never so glad

Her eyes were so green

Like the Margaree Isle

Made me weak in the knees

Oh with every smile

 

I took her to movies,

For dinners and dances

I wined her and dined her

With heartfelt romances

I tempted her with city lights

And all of my charms

She left me for another

For a life on the farm

 

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

They’re full of surprises

And they’ll keep you on your toes

Take it from someone

Just trust me I know

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

 

 

Boy, when I met your mother

My heart was in shreds

I’d given up on true love

And left it for dead

She treated me tender

Was gentle and kind

She mended my broken heart

That’s when I made up my mind

 

Her eyes were so brown

Like the cliffs by the shore

She’d lead me on and tease me

Til I begged her no more

I gathered up my courage

And I gave her a ring

And when she said yes

My heart it did sing

 

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

They’re full of surprises

And they’ll keep you on your toes

Take it from someone

Just trust me I know

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

 

 

The rest son is history

A story well told

About life laughs and love

Being together, growing old

How ‘d I know she was the one

Well, I guess, I suppose

It was the first time she kissed me

On the tip of my nose

 

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

They’re full of surprises

And they’ll keep you on your toes

Take it from someone

Just trust me I know

You’d better watch out

For the girls from St. Rose

 

Son,   you will lose your heart

To the girls of St. Rose
