Lyrics
Rosa’s Cantina

Rosa’s cantina,
It’s where everyone knows …
Jealousy and hate,
Once in a while they will blow …

I can see those daggers coming from your eyes,
You’re the author of those terrible lies,
Baseless and absurd,
Faceless are the words,
They hang on me like Satan’s big curse.

They call it cantina consequence,
When you enter Rosa’s liar,
Be prepared for the subsequent,
Poison in the hateful air,
Many lovers have gone in there,
To chase the thrills of grand romance,
Its sudden rise tempers advance,
In cantina consequence it’s dicey at best.

My mistake was showing you the wedding ring,
Was the clue that jealousy’s in my drink,
Fast lips, fleeting trick,
Judge’s rhetoric,
In Rosa’s joint the truth doesn't stick,
The walls are thick

They call it cantina consequence,
When you enter Rosa’s liar,
Be prepared for the subsequent,
Poison in the hateful air,
Many lovers have gone in there,
To chase the thrills of grand romance,
Its sudden rise tempers advance,
In cantina consequence it’s dicey at best.

I can see those daggers coming from your eyes,
You’re the author of those terrible lies,
Baseless and absurd,
Faceless are the words,
They hang on me like Satan’s big curse

Rosa’s cantina,
It’s where everyone knows …
Jealousy and hate,
Once in a while they will blow …

Slick as butter
You built a smooth groove to fit the lyric - great job. Nice guitar work on the Strat, love the tone you get.

Coolness
Thought I was in a cool night club. Dig this. Don't worry about the genre. This genre here should be "cool".

Rosa's
This song does an absolutely fabulous job of capturing dismal loneliness, empty thrill-chasing, and one too many nights spent in a place like Rosa's Cantina. It reminds me of a protagonist who is so burned out on the same old games, but keeps playing them anyway. I had to just really sit still and listen to this one because the lyrics are so fascinating. Nice slow groove too!

ROSA'S CANTINA
I love the contemporary blues feel and instrumentation. And the Knofler-like vocal sits perfectly atop it. Great chorus. I love the vocal arrangement during the chorus. Great production and mix!

faved by 8 seconds!
love the backer dude! Great groove, all instrumentations sounds great, love the mix and production, Stan wrote some cool lyrics, great hook, love the word "subsequent", "dicey at best", I love that! I agree with Andrew about liking the Mark Knopfler style vocals, I also like the Steely Dan harmonies, my only small suggestion would be to tighten them (the harmonies) up to sync with the lead vocal, stellar post Cees, I'm becoming a big fan!

Applause...
...for a very fine collaborative effort between you and Stan (I worked with him quite a few years myself!) Loved the atmosphere and intensity portrayed here; you really work well with his music and I'm sure Stan is beaming at what you've done with it Cees. Thanks again--and keep them coming! Michael

rosa's cantina
hi cees. loving this. groovy, atmospheric. great mix...cool vocal delivery. i think stan meant rosa's 'lair' though...not 'liar'. or maybe it was intentional. anyway, it's a minor nit-pick on something really cool. excellent job. love your voice cees.
