about

Rosita came together almost instantly when Alex started a sad Carlos Santana style riff and Dave just sang the chorus as is. A one night affair on a Mexican beach left a memory that lingers and can't be shaken.

lyrics

Oh Rosita, my Spanish señorita
I still smell the flowers in your hair
While you said you loved me so
All along I knew you'd go
Oh Rosita, my darling how could you dare

It was just one of those nights
Hot and sultry, full moonlight
And the waves breaking lazy on the beach

I was lost and all alone
Cast adrift and far from home
And the bottle was never out of reach

All at once I felt the breeze
Heard the rustling of the leaves
I looked up and I saw you standing there

Your dark eyes met with mine
And I lost all sense of time
Nothing mattered I no longer seemed to care

We danced all through the night
We held each other tight
Making promises like castles in the sand

For I knew it wasn't long
That I'd hear the final song
But you held my heart in the palm of your hand

Oh Rosita, mi Bonita señorita
I still smell the flowers in your hair
While you said you loved me so
All along I knew you'd go
Oh Rosita, my darling how could you dare
