My Sister Rose

This song is by 10,000 Maniacs and appears on the album In My Tribe (1987).

Big, big plans are being made
For my sister's wedding day
We'll have a ball at the Sons of Roma Hall
Family, friends, come one and all
First, the best man make a toast
To Rocky and my sister, Rose
A life of years free of tears
Bottoms up and lots of luck

Polka, tango everyone
Cha-cha, mambo, Rose and Rock alone
Frankie Rizzo and his Combo play on

Single girls all hear the call
From a crowd at the back wall
And when the bouquet flies each one tries
To be the best catch and next year's bride
Uncle Sam and Uncle Joe take their places in a row
They're standing by side to side
For dollar dances with the bride

Polka, tango everyone
Cha-cha, mambo, Rose and Rock alone
He's a banker, she'll be well off now

Sister Rose, take your mother's place
Trade your home and your maiden name
For a list of vows and a veil of lace
Made a wife of you today

Now they cut the five-tier cake
That Colucci, he can bake
A frosted tower of sugar and flour
For the couple of the hour

Polka, tango everyone
Cha-cha, mambo, Rose and Rock alone
She was born to wear that gown

Sister Rose, take your mother's place
Trade your home and your maiden name
For a list of vows and a veil of lace
Made a wife of you today
But you're my sister, Rose, the same
