AC/DC - Whole Lotta Rosie - Live 1977 (Bon Scott)

Updated: Feb 25




The song is about an obese Tasmanian woman, Rosie, with whom the singer (Bon Scott) had a one-night stand at the Freeway Gardens Motel in North Melbourne. In addition to pointing out the woman's size, the singer finds her to be one of the most talented lovers he's ever experienced.


The song's first verse reveals Rosie's substantial physical measurements (42"-39"-56"), and that she weighs nineteen stone (266 pounds/approximately 120 kilograms). On the Live from the Atlantic Studios disc, however, Scott describes the titular woman as "... a Tasmanian devil ... weighs 305 pounds (138kg)...," a measurement that differs from the "19 stone" lyric (305 lb being 21 st 11 lb).




Lyrics


Wanna tell you story

About woman I know

When it comes to lovin'

She steals the show

She ain't exactly pretty

Ain't exactly small

Fourt'two thirt'ninefiftysix

You could say she's got it all


Never had a woman

Never had a woman like you

Doin' all the things

Doin' all the things you do

Ain't no fairy story

Ain't no skin and bones

But you give it all you got

Weighin' in at nineteen stone

You're a whole lotta woman

A whole lotta woman

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta Rosie

And you're a whole lotta woman


Honey you can do it

Do it to me all night long

Only one who turn me

Only one who turn me on

All through the night time

Right around the clock

To my surprise

Rosie never stops

She was a whole lotta woman

Whole lotta woman

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta Rosie

A whole lotta woman


Whole lotta woman

Whole lotta woman

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta woman-man-man yeah

Whole lotta Rosie

Whole lotta woman

Whole lotta woman
