Rose I Said Lyrics

Rose I Said - Squeeze

Yes I cried the moment that her hand slapped my face

A mouth full of sandwich went all over the place

She left like a tornado the door of course slammed

I stood in the kitchen a very confused man

The thump thump of her foot steps went right up the stairs

The cat ran for cover to the living room chairs

But what was the problem what on earth could be wrong

To deserve a slapped face it all seemed far too strong

Rose I said heaven knows what weve done

Rose I said water flows under the bridge

Rose I said heaven knows is this love

Rose I said curtains close back to read the script

Up to the bedside where she lay in tears

The drawers were left half open her clothes laying near

A suitcase tipped sideways at the end of the room

I swallowed my sandwich and picked up her boots

She turned just like an actress a glare came my way

I said what's the matter what have I done today

She spat out the name of the girl across the road

Ill never forget the way she flared her nose

 

Rose I said heaven knows what we've done

Rose I said water flows under the bridge

Rose I said heaven knows is this love

Rose I said curtains close back to read the script

 

Rose was the girl who some days Id drive to work

She worked in the office as an articled clerk

Sometimes we had lunch in the pub along the street

There was nothing between us just good company

I admit that I liked her but thats all it was

I stood at the bedside in a state of shock

She heard it different from a friend she met today

Who says she saw us kissing down an alleyway

I felt like two people a jekyll and a hyde

Id really made my bed to lay in this time

I picked with my tongue at the bread stuck in my teeth

There through the window her house on the street

I knew I was guilty I told myself to lie

It seemed to make no difference on the bed she cried

I left with my head bowed I felt the curtain drop

Rose stood in the wings looking pretty in a frock

Rose I said heaven knows what we've done

Rose I said water flows under the bridge

Rose I said heaven knows is this love

Rose I said curtains close back to read the script

Rose I said heaven knows what we've done

Rose I said water flows under the bridge

Rose I said heaven knows is this love

Rose I said curtains close back to read the script
