Earworm du jour

Sometimes I find a song I could listen to all day “on a loop” again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again.

This is one of them.

Here are the lyrics.

Cracklin’ Rosie, get on board
We’re gonna ride till there ain’t no more to go
Taking it slow
Lord, don’t you know
Have me a time with a poor man’s lady
Hitchin’ on a twilight train
Ain’t nothing there that I care to take along
Maybe a song
To sing when I want
Don’t need to say please to no man for a happy tune
Oh, I love my Rosie child
She got the way to make me happy
You and me, we go in style
Cracklin’ Rosie you’re a store-bought woman
You make me sing like a guitar hummin’
So hang on to me, girl
Our song keeps runnin’ on
Play it now
Play it now
Play it now, my baby
Cracklin’ Rosie, make me a smile
God if it lasts for an hour, that’s all right
We got all night
To set the world right
Find us a dream that don’t asks no questions, yeah
Oh, I love my Rosie child
You got the way to make me happy
You and me, we go in style
Cracklin’ Rosie, you’re a store-bought woman
You make me sing like a guitar hummin’
So hang on to me, girl
Our song keeps runnin’ on
Play it now
Play it now
Play it now, my baby
Cracklin’ Rosie, make me a smile
God if it lasts for an hour, that’s all right
We got all night
To set the world right
Find us a dream that don’t asks no questions, yeah

 

Some people think it’s about a night spent with a lady of the night.  Personally I think they are getting confused with Whole Lotta Rosie, by AC/DC.  Conventional wisdom has it that the song is about a bottle of wine.

Have a cracklin’ day, won’t you!
