Song Lyrics



It ain`t so long ago since we were just two kids

Remember well memories we all hid

But you`re much older now, although you still are young

I know you well, I`m like you

Hey Rose, you`re finer than you know

Why hang around with clothes of another name

Hair so dyed she lost too much inside

Ain`t nothing left to hide in the game

Hey Rose, how do you laugh in your own show

Try to fight the fears that rise within

Rock `n` roll slag, oh my, you`re such a drag

Trying to find the corner to inject

Hey Rose, so silently she goes

Careful not to make up, see your maker

Hey Rose, how do you laugh when she`s on show

Try to fight the fears that rise within

Hey, rock `n` roll slag, oh oh, you`re such a drag

Trying to find the corner to inject

Hey Rose, you`re finer than you know

And I hate to see you cold on a summer day
