"Rock Boys" as written by Patience Jessica Hodgson, John William Patterson and Alana Maree Skyring....
Rock, rock, rock
Said the boys on top
And how'd you miss them?
How'd you miss them?

Rock, rock, rock
Said the boys on top
And how'd you miss them?
How'd you miss them?

Nothing
Nothing, yeah, oh
Nothing
Nothing, yeah, oh

Ooh, heh
Whoa, nothing for you
Yeah, oh, yeah
Whoa, nothing for you

Yeah, yeah
Whoa, nothing for you
Yeah, yeah
Whoa, nothing for you

Rock, rock, rock
Said the boys on top
And how'd you miss them?
How did you miss them?

    General CommentI always thought it was "rock set boys on top" as in how men always dominate the rock industry. Hmm.

    General CommentI guess this would be a simple song about home... I mean, the Grates are famous now, and maybe Patience felt homsick when she wrote this.

    General Commentpersonally i think it's about groupies falling in love with their rock boys...band members in other words.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl whose run away from home and hooks up with troublemakers (the rock boys), but they just want sex and excitement (the boys are on top and all they have to say is 'rock').

    So she runs away again (?) because she is feeling nostalgic about home. While she's going home, she feels regret about leaving the rock boys, but then thinks to how bad they were: 'how could I have missed them (the rock boys) at all'

    So that's my take on it.

    General CommentI, too, interpret this song as making a statement about the male dominance in our music industry, but it could be open to a wide range of readings, as many of the above comments have pointed out. Patience's voice on this song is simply gorgeous, and it must be one of my favourites off this album.
