"Rosie" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Desmond Child, Richard S Sambora and Diane Eve Warren....
Rosie whatcha doin' in this low class joint,
Dancin' in the dark all day?
You used to be the darlin' of your high school scene,
Now you put your love on display.
A sweaty hand hands you up a dollar bill,
Hungry eyes never seem to get their fill.

I used to watch you walking down the hall.
Rosie do you see me when you hear them call your name?

Rosie, Rosie, I want to take you away.
Rosie, Rosie, I want to make you mine some day.

Rosie I went with you for that rose tattoo,
You promised no-one else would see.
I used to wait and drive you home from dancin' school,
Remember when you danced just for me?
Our love was deeper than the night was long,
But things just didn't work out like our favorite song.

I used to watch you walking down the hall.
Rosie do you see me when you hear them call your name?

Rosie, Rosie, I want to take you away.
Rosie, Rosie, I want to make you mine some day.

Do you remember?
Our love was deeper than the night was long,
But things just didn't work out like our favorite song.

I used to watch you walking down the hall.
Rosie do you see me when you hear them call your name?

Rosie, Rosie, I want to take you away.
Rosie, Rosie, I want to make you mine some day.

Rosie, Rosie, I want to take you away.
Rosie, Rosie, I want to take you away.

    General CommentRichie always said this song is about a bitch named Rosie, and the worst kind of a bitch cause she was a go-go dancer. richie and the guys from Bon Jovi used to know this prostitute back from new jersey in 80's.
