Thin Lizzy - Rosalie - 1975




Originally written and recorded by Bob Seger in 1972, this cover is the opening track on 1975’s Fighting.


The song is intended as a tribute to Rosalie Trombley, a former music director for CKLW in Canada. Rosalie was known for her knack at picking major commercial hits, including The Guess Who’s “American Woman” and Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets.”


Released before the bands breakthrough American Hit “The Boys Are Back in Town,” it may have been a sly attempt at asking for a little help from a certain music director.



Lyrics


She's quite a mediator

A smoother operator you will never see

Said see you later

You know one day I disobeyed her openly


She knows music

I know music too, you see

She's got the power

The teen queen, Rosalie


She's got the pleasure

Comes from all the cornerstones of the world

She's so fantastic

She's everybody's favorite little record girl


She knows music

I know music too, you see

She's got the power

I got the power, Rosalie


Rosalie [Repeat: x4]


Down on me, Rosalie

Shine on me will you please


Well chattanooga, lacooda, baooga loosa

You can hear her fine

She makes the choices

Then you'd best be smiling when it's losing time


She knows music

I know music too, you see

She's got the power

She is a tower, Rosalie


Rosalie [Repeat: x4]
