Rosie Strike Back Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Cash Roseanne
King's record shop
Rosie strike back
He's a bruiser, he likes to tease you
He's a loser, you think he needs you
You always come back, you always come back for more
Verse 2
He winds up tight, out all night
Been drinkin' down he's looking for a fight
He knocks you down; you don't even know what for
Verse 0
Rosie strike back
Rosie strike back
Hit the road and never look back
You can't suffer your whole life living like that
Get goin', don't pack
Take the baby and the clothes on your back
Keep walking Rosie
Strike back
Verse 3
You think he's changin', weeks pass
He's angry, lies coiled like a snake in the grass
The time will come when he takes it all out on you
Verse 4
He throws punches, you bear with him
Don't take it on you, Rosie, don't be his victim
You can't carry the blame for what he's puttin' you through
Verse 5
Verse 6
Don't take his world on your shoulder
Don't let your heart grow much colder
There's people out there who can help you
If you let them help you
Hey, Rosie
Verse 7
Keep walking, Rosie
Verse 8
