Whatever you think of me I'm still your friend
So other than nothin' what's new
The water's still flowin' through the rose on my skin
This here tattoo is for you

The boys at the parlor downtown
Didn't waste anytime a-puttin' it down
Time has been wastin' away I can see it

Go sailin' on by as it slips through my fingers
The bow and the wave never wait for tomorrow
They just keep on rollin' as straight as an arrow, good night

Girl of my dreams you get better each day
I wish I could see you somehow
Girls that I love is there no other way
This here tattoo is for now

I'd been out drinkin' all day
I got carried away at the parlor last night
This summer rose is for you it's no wonder

I bothered to wander back into the parlor
It's red and in bloom and it's more than one color
It lives on forever for just a few dollars, good night

Whatever you think of me I'm still your friend
So baby whatever you do
Now that it's taken its permanent home
This here tattoo is for you

The boys at the parlor downtown
Didn't waste any time a-puttin' it down
Time has been wastin' away, you know time doesn't

Wait for nobody to find what they're after
It just keeps on rolling on down the deep canyons
And through the green meadows into the broad ocean, good night

Whatever you think of me I'm still your friend
So other than nothin' what's new
The water's still flowing through the rose on my skin
This here tattoo is for you
The water's still flowin through the rose on my skin
This here tattoo is for you
