Rosalinda Why do you cry?
Rosalinda Could this be why?
Now that there's nothing left to do
Now that the children have all grown
Now all you have is just a cat and a silent
Rosalinda. Why do you weep?
Rosalinda. Alone you sleep.
But the neighbours turn away
What will it take for them to learn
That all you want is to love and
To be loved in return
Rosalinda. We've gone away.
Rosalinda. Still you stay.
Being what you've always been.
And doing what you've always done.
How can we give you back the time
You gave to us when you were young?
Rosalinda. Turn out the light.
Rosalinda. Say goodnight.
Now that the children have all grown.
Now that we've all gone away.
Now that you're sitting at your home
Without a word to say.
