    Lyrics

    Whatever you think of me I'm still your friend
    So other than nothin' what's new
    The water's still flowin' through the rose on my skin
    This here tattoo is for you

    The boys at the parlor downtown
    Didn't waste anytime a-puttin' it down
    Time has been wastin' away I can see it

    Go sailin' on by as it slips through my fingers
    The bow and the wave never wait for tomorrow
    They just keep on rollin' as straight as an arrow, good night

    Girl of my dreams you get better each day
    I wish I could see you somehow
    Girls that I love is there no other way
    This here tattoo is for now

    I'd been out drinkin' all day
    I got carried away at the parlor last night
    This summer rose is for you it's no wonder

    I bothered to wander back into the parlor
    It's red and in bloom and it's more than one color
    It lives on forever for just a few dollars, good night

    Whatever you think of me I'm still your friend
    So baby whatever you do
    Now that it's taken its permanent home
    This here tattoo is for you

    The boys at the parlor downtown
    Didn't waste any time a-puttin' it down
    Time has been wastin' away, you know time doesn't

    Wait for nobody to find what they're after
    It just keeps on rolling on down the deep canyons
    And through the green meadows into the broad ocean, good night

    Whatever you think of me I'm still your friend
    So other than nothin' what's new
    The water's still flowing through the rose on my skin
    This here tattoo is for you
    The water's still flowin through the rose on my skin
    This here tattoo is for you
