La Rosita de Broadway - Bob Norman

    Ah, la Rosita de Broadway
    Ah, la Rosita de Broadway
    La Rosita de Broadway

    And it's caldo gallego with white beans
    Some sausage and pigs knuckle too
    In the midst of the day, in this warm summer rain
    La Rosita, we all come to you

    [Repeat Chorus]

    The Dominicanos come in here to argue
    And the Cubans for Capitan cigars
    And the warm sharp tongue of the waitress
    And the sound of the Spanish guitar

    [Repeat Chorus]

    Out in the rain the wars continue
    And the lines are drawn clear and fine like knives
    Ah, but here there is peace for half an hour at least
    Such a fragile flower of Broadway

    [Repeat Chorus]

    1978 by Bob Norman

    (La Rosita de Bovadway is a restaurant at Broadway and 1O8th Street in New York City. Caldo gallego is good soup. You don't have to be Spanish, or even Spanish-speaking, to sing the chorus.)
