There is a rose in Spanish Harlem

It only comes out when the moon is on the run
It's growing in the street right up through the concrete

A red rose up in Spanish Harlem
With eyes as black as coal that look down in his soul
I'm goin' to beg his pardon yeah
He's going to pick that rose

A red rose up in Spanish Harlem
He's going to pick that rose

And starts a fire there and then he loses control

And watch her as she grows in his garden
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
