Gary lives with Rosie
And Be Bop got something old and something new
I got something fine for you every minute now
If you wanna sit right down and stick it all right through

They were gettin' tired of Johnny and all the big boys from N.Y.C.
They say, "Jump on board pretty baby"
And I don't know but it seems like
It might be a pretty good buzz to me

They'll help you and they'll hurt you
You're asked to leave so much behind
They say forget about tomorrow
And concentrate on everything you know you're gonna find

So move over red robin
Have you got room for one more that just can't seem to win?
There's no sense denying
That's your best reason on earth for crying
Those days will never be 'round again

There's Jackie and there's Brian
Then there's four, then there's five, and then a couple more
You be a good boy and don't drink too much
I'll show you something, maybe one trick
Later on, maybe a couple more

So step right up and put your music where your mouth is
The pretty boys can make room for one more that just can't seem to win
There's no sense denying, that's the reason they found you crying
Your chance will never be 'round again

But I'll help you in the meantime
Total up just what they're worth when they're gone
If you don't get it right the first time
I'll help you take one more crack at it much, much later on

'Cause Gary lives with Rosie
And Be Bop got something old and something new
I got something fine for you every minute now
If you wanna sit right down and stick it all right through
