Mam[G]a pyjama rolled outta bed, she ran to the police s[C]tation
When the [D]cop found out, he began to shout, he started the invest[G]igation
And it's against the [D]law, it was against the l[G]aw
What what mama [D]saw, it was against the l[G]aw
Mama looked down and spit on the ground ever time her name gets mentioned
The cop said oy, if I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention
Well I'm on my wa[C]y, I don't know w[G]here I'm goin'
I'm on my [C]way, takin' my [G]time, but I d[A]on't know w[D]here
Goodbye to R[C]osie, the queen of Co[G]rona
Seein' me and Ju[F]lio d[C]own by the sch[D]ooly[G]ard
Seein' me and Ju[F]lio d[C]own by the sch[D]ooly[G]ard
(Instrumental break)
In a couple of days they're gonna take me away
When the press let the story leak
Now when the radical breach comes to get me released
Appears all on the cover of Newsweek
And I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm goin'
But I'm on my way, takin' my time, but I don't know where
Goodbye to Rosie, the queen of Corona
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard
Seein' me and Julio down by the schoolyard

Intro: A D | A E | A D | A E |
[A]Mama Pajama rolled out of bed
and she ran to the police [D]station
When the [E]papa found out he began to shout
and that's what started the investi[A]gation[D]
But it's against the l[E]aw, it was against the [A]law
What the mama [E]saw, was against the [A]law
Well the mama looks down and she spit on the ground
Every time my name gets mentioned
And the papa says "Oy, when I get that boy
I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention!"
And I'm on my [D]way, I don't know [A]where I'm going
I'm on my [D]way, takin' my t[A]ime but I d[B]on't know w[E]here
Goodbye to R[D]osie, Queen of [A]Corona
See you, [A]me, and [G]Julio [D]down by the [E]school[A]yar[D]d
See you, [A]me, and [G]Julio [D]down by the [E]school[A]yard
break: D |D |A |A |D |D |A B|E |D |D
A |A |A G |D E | A D | A E |A G |D E | A D | A E |
In a couple of days they come and take me away
But the press let the story leak
And when the radical priest come and get me released
We's all on the cover of Newsweek.
And I'm on my way, I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way, takin' my time but I don't know where
Goodbye to Rosie, Queen of Corona
See you, me, and Julio down by the schoolyard
See you, me, and Julio down by the schoolyard
Note: intro pattern can be played using a D6 instead of D. If so,
play the intro as follows.
A = |x07655|
D6= |xx7777|
E = |xxx454|
This song also works well if one guitar plays in A as described and
the other capos 2 and plays in G.
