"Rosie" as written by and Kelly Jones....
Rosie helped the kids stay alive
She gave them the drugs so they didn't die
She cleaned up their mess as they wept and they moaned
She got paid so little, she rented her home

An angel face with the strength of a tower
Worked everyday, every minute, every hour
When she wasn't on the ward, she was traveling on the train
Through the wind and the sun, and the snow, and the rain

Oh, Rosie, we thank you again
Oh, Rosie, we thank you again

Works all day, no time to eat
Running back and forth to help children see
We piss up her wall, all the poison we take
She barely gets out, not to dine or to drink

I tip my hat to the angels on the ward
You're in my heart with love forever more
I thank you now for saving my girl
And bringing her back to her own little world

Oh, Rosie, I thank you again
Oh, Rosie, I thank you again
Oh, Rosie, I thank you again

    General CommentThis song is actually about a nurse that helped his daughter Lolita when she was taken ill, in the song he thanks her for what she did and tells how she works so hard for such a little amount of money.

    General CommentHm. Somehow I remembered metallica ballads while I was listening to this. It sounds to me like sitting in the wind, staring at the life around passing by.
    I like the atmosphere of it.

    General CommentIt sounds to me he's saying thank you to his mother or a woman that he know you did everything they could to get by to raise her children
