it was the Festival of Plenty
those four days before Lent
when mayhem was made
much time and money spent
the ladies had their freedom
indiscretions accepted or ignored
for even in the safest of marriages
one or other can get bored

Rosenfest was a safety valve
a period of celebration and release
when itches could be scratched before
the rest of the year was spent in peace
I had some tender moments then
always sure that at festival's end
any passionate indiscretion
wouldn't come between friends

that was in the nineteen sixties
those much more innocent days
nowadays the world at large
has lost so many innocent ways
and coming with that change
a more cynical society here
I wonder if Rosenfest is now still
celebrated with such joy and cheer
