Am I the only person in the world who did not know what the Jackson Browne song Rosie was about? I thought it was a really pretty song about his wife... What did you all think? My husband thought it was hilarious that I didn't know. I guess I don't pay enough attention to the lyrics. Just in case you don't know the song, here are the lyrics, what do ya think? I have to say it made me like Jackson Browne a little bit more... :)





She was standing at the load-in
When the trucks rolled up
She was sniffing all around
Like a half grown female pup
She wasn’t hard to talk to
Looked like she had nowhere to go
So I gave her my pass
So she could get in and see the show

Well I sat her down right next to me
And I got her a beer
While I mixed that sound on stage
So the band could hear
The more I watched her watch them play
The less I could think of to say
And when they walked off stage
The drummer swept that girl away

But rosie you’re all right -- you wear my ring
When you hold me tight -- rosie that’s my thing
When you turn out the light -- I’ve got to hand it to me
Looks like it’s me and you again tonight rosie

Well I guess I might have known from the start
She’d come for a star
Might have told my imagination not to run too far
Of all the times that I’ve been burned
By now you’d think I’d have learned
That it’s who you look like
Not who you are

But rosie you’re all right -- you wear my ring
When you hold me tight -- rosie that’s my thing
When you turn out the light -- I’ve got to hand it to me
Looks like it’s me and you again tonight rosie

that song is about masturbating? (from what bob wrote, i'm assuming) cuz i first thought it was about a puppy, then i thought a hooker. NOW it's him doing HIM? ick.

I found out Blister in the Sun was about masterbation. I guess I don't listen closely to lyrics.
