What a difference a win makes

He went to see his friend called Rosalie
Who kept a famous bar just out of town
The first girl that he met was Martha Brown
She smiled and then she sat down on his knee
      He told her that he’d won the lottery
      And Rosie’s daughter rushed to take her place
      With perfect figure and a pretty face
      She smiled and then she sat down on his knee
Now Rosie didn’t like what she could see
With cash like his he had to have the best
So sent her daughter off to join the rest
She smiled and then she sat down on his knee
    He went to see a friend called Rosalie
    She smiled and then she sat down on his knee
