Rosanna makes my day begin 
With kisses for a king
And coffee on a silver tray
She sees the shape I'm in
And if she should ever break away
I'd follow close behind her
'Cause Rosanna yes Rosanna  Rules my heart 

 Rosanna knows the times I keep
A fire softly glows
And the shadows lick the walls 
She knows when I'm asleep 
The dinner's served at eight o'clock on time
And all is well by nine
'Cause Rosanna yes Rosanna  Rules my heart 

 Rosanna moves across the floor 
Her perfume fills the air
As she walks beside my easy chair 
I touch her hand once more
And I may never sleep again 
I like the bag she put me in 

 Rosanna knows the ways of a man
But not the way I feel
I don't really care what happens now
It's catch me if you can
For no matter what occasion should arise 
She likes to sympathize 
'Cause Rosanna yes Rosanna 
Rosanna, Rosanna  Rules my heart
