Hey Rosie! You over there with the long, green neck,
Who gave you permission...all my water lilies to wreck?
Who do you think you are with your expensive taste?
Eating all my gourmet shrimp and leaving the veggies to waste.
Hey Rosie! You with the bad reputation, the one with the great fame,
You're a big bunch of trouble... but we love you just the same!
Hey Rosie! Who taught you how to swim with the greatest of ease?
Who gave you permission...all my frogs and gold fish to tease?
Who do you think you are with that sweet, innocent, smiling face?
Diving to the bottom to hide for the winter and leaving not a trace.
Hey Rosie! You with the sunshine disposition, the one we love to hate,
We'll be waiting for you come springtime...waiting at the garden gate.
