VP_007811 Verse 1You remember Rosie Green who went across the sea, And fell in love with soldier Jean, a chap from gay Paree, She just returned so angry and they say she's feeling blue. Because her "Frenchy" taught another girl to parlevous But Rosie got a lonesome spell today. Then quickly sent this cablegram away. Chorus 1Frenchy come over Frenchy I'm sorry dearie I made you cry But when you smiled at KKKKKaty I was angry and said 'goodbye' Bring all the kissing that you promised Your little Rose in No-Man's Land And Pack up your La-La's in your old kit bag And Frenchy come to Yankee land. Verse 2Rosie waited for a day but Jean had not replied. She quickly figured out a way to bring him to her side, Beneath the kitchen window she prepared a lovely trench, And furnished it completely, then she took a course in French. Into the cable office Rosie flew. And wired, I've dug a little home for you.
