  The Basement Tapes - may/october 1967  

I'm goin down to Rose Marie's
She never does me wrong
She puts it to me plain as day
And gives it to me for a song.
It's a wicked life but what the hell
Everybody's got to eat
And i'm just the same as anyone else
When it comes to scratchin' for my meat.

Goin' to Acapulco, goin' on the run
Goin' down to see soft gut, goin' to have some fun
Yeah goin' to have some fun.

Now whenever i am gettin' up
And can't find what i need
I just make it down to Rose Marie's
And get somethin' quick to eat.
It's not a bad way to make a livin'
An' i ain't complainin' none
For i can plow my plum an' drink my rum 
An' then go on home an' have my fun.

Goin' to Acapulco, goin' on the run
Goin' down to see soft gut, goin' to have some fun
Yeah goin' to have some fun.

Now when someone offers me a joke
I just say "No thanks."
I try to tell them like it is
An' keep away from pranks.
Like everytime you know when the well breaks down 
I just go pump on it some
Rose Marie she likes to go to big places
An' just set there waitin' for me to come.

Goin' to Acapulco, goin' on the run
Goin' down to see soft gut, goin' down some fun
Yeah goin' to have some fun.  up
