Rose Stopnick Can Cook lyrics

Rose Stopnick Can Cook

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN
In Nineteen-Sixty-Three
our widowed son
a tragedy, tragedy
married a friend
from New York City
a pity, a pity.

STUART
Wonderful things
come to an end.
Marry a friend.
Make a new start.

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA GELLMAN
Rose Stopnick can cook.
Rose Stopnick is lovely.
Rose Stopnick doesn?t smoke.
Or play the bassoon.

CAROLINE
I?m going home, Mrs. Gellman,
I don?t wash the clothes.

ROSE
Please, call me Rose.

CAROLINE
I put up the shrimps,
I wash the floor upstairs,
I dusted the World Book Encyclopedia,
I ironed the linens?

ROSE
And please take some cabbage
home to your kids.

CAROLINE
Don?t like the smell. Night, Mrs. Gellman.

NOAH & GRANDMA & GRANDPA GELLMAN
Rose Stopnick can cook.

STUART
Make a new start.

NOAH
Rose Stopnick is nice to me.

STUART
Make a new start.

ROSE
Noah, darling, look!
You left change in your pants pockets again!

NOAH & GRANDMA & GRANDPA GELLMAN
Rose Stopnick doesn?t smoke.

STUART
Marry a friend, make a new start?

NOAH
I hate her
I hate her
with all my heart.
