Rosie
"Rosie", by Joan Armatrading            

G
He has little red feet
His stockin's in his shoes
C            D            G
Lipstick and rouge on his face
He has his hair piled high
Has a red umbrella
    C           D           G
And carries his head in the sky
           
               Em  D                G              Em
And I said "Awe Rosie, don't you do that to the boys
           C         D
Don't you come on so willing
G                     Em       C D Em
Don't you come on so strong 
It can be so chillin'         C D Em
When you act so willin'
         Em     C    D        G
And your warmth sets like the sun

         G
He has a little baby brother
A big fat mama
    C               D             G
His sister asks for dimes on the street
He doesn't feel it's a cover
In fact he knows
     C   D      G
For sure he can please

I said he's out there right now
Running with the devil
C                  D     G
Struttin' down the alley ways
With the nervous young hopeful
At his heel
    C                           D         G
And know his satisfaction won't drive him away

            Em  D                G              Em
And I said "Awe Rosie, don't you do that to the boys
           C         D
Don't you come on so willing
G                     Em       C D Em
Don't you come on so strong 
It can be so chillin'         C D Em
When you act so willin'
         Em     C    D        G
And your warmth sets like the sun


He's not looking for a friend
He's not looking for a lover
C            D       G
There in the crowded bar
He has rings on his fingers
He's there to tease
    C                     D               G
You know he only wants to take things too far

            Em  D                G              Em
And I said "Awe Rosie, don't you do that to the boys
           C         D
Don't you come on so willing
G                     Em       C D Em
Don't you come on so strong 
It can be so chillin'         C D Em
When you act so willin'
         Em     C    D        G
And your warmth sets like the sun
